Companions are Enrichment Center volunteers who provide one-on-one assistance to homebound Easthampton residents 60 years of age and older who are not able to utilize existing transportation options or who require the assistance of an escort.
Volunteers provide assistance with transportation/escort to medical appointments, shopping, hairdresser/barber, errands, respite and friendly visiting.
This program is dependent upon grant funding and frequently has a waiting list. This program is free, but donations are encouraged to help offset costs.
FEBRUARY 2014 UPDATE: THERE IS CURRENTLY A WAITING LIST FOR THE COMPANION PROGRAM DUE TO A LACK OF VOLUNTEER DRIVERS.
