Celebrate Seniority offers two free programs that can assist seniors who are feeling isolated and lonely.

MultiCare Celebrate Seniority is offering a program called “Help For Isolated Seniors.” Contact for this program is included on the flier.   Below is more information about the program.  I will also attach the application forms.

The Senior Friend Program (SFP) promotes social engagement of older adults in Pierce County by pairing volunteers with older adults aged 60+ who are homebound and socially isolated. (In partnership with Lutheran Community Services Northwest.

Participants may receive:

  • Companionship – in person visits
  • Transportation – errands and medical appointments
  • Activities – both indoor and outdoor

The Care Pairs Program offers tools, guidance, and encouragement. Unpaid caregivers will receive weekly check-ins from staff and help with:

  • Resources
  • Safety tips
  • A listening ear

It is free to participate in both programs.

To qualify for both programs you must be:

  • 60 years or above for Senior Friends
  • Care Pairs at least 1 person needs to be 60+
  • Lonely or Homebound
  • Willing to participate in regular visits
  • A Pierce County resident (not in assisted living or SNF)
