The F.U.N. Place Parenting Guild

Reach out, touch a life, make a difference.

Are you over 60 years old?

Could you enjoy sharing yourself and your lifetime of experience
with others?

Are you willing to commit at least 12 hours a week to establish
solid and reliable relationships with those you serve?

If so you could join:

The Foster Grandparent program offers seniors opportunities to serve as mentors, tutors, and caregivers for children and youth with special or exceptional needs. They offer emotional support to children who have been abused and neglected, mentor troubled teenagers and young mothers, and care for premature infants and children with physical disabilities. They provide 12-20 hours of weekly service to community organizations such as schools, hospitals, and youth centers.

The Senior Companion Program is a service initiative through which seniors provide assistance and friendship to elderly individuals who are homebound and, generally, living alone. By taking care of simple chores, providing transportations to medical appointments, and offering contact to the outside world.
Senior Companions often provide the services that frail elderly need to live independently. They also provide respite care to relieve live-in caregivers for short periods of time.

Foster Grandparents and Senior Companions receive a modest, tax-free stipend, reimbursement for transportation and meals during service hours, an annual physical examination, and accident and liability insurance while on duty.
