Momiji understands that sometimes aging can mean increased isolation, at a time when people need connections and extra support. Our Friendly Visiting program matches seniors who would benefit from a friendly weekly visit with a thoroughly trained volunteer. Visits can be made in person or via telephone. Visits typically focus on the senior’s hobbies and interests, and can include conversation, reading and playing games; volunteers are also able to help with shopping, and can escort seniors to appointments and activities, including programs at Momiji. Friendly Visiting volunteers receive extensive training, and both English and Japanese speakers are available.
