About Better Together
In the Better Together program, an older adult “Neighbor” and their assigned Volunteer will spend four hours per month participating in social activities. Volunteers and Neighbors can enjoy a variety of activities together, such as playing cards, going for walks, seeing a movie or play, going shopping, or simply drinking coffee and talking.
Since the requirement for each Volunteer is four hours per month, Better Together is a very accommodating volunteer opportunity. Neighbors are located throughout the community, meaning Volunteers can be matched up with a Neighbor located in their very own neighborhood. Volunteers can spend time with their Neighbor at a mutually agreed upon time.
LSS is receiving applications from Neighbors throughout the community who would like the extra opportunity to socialize every month. LSS next does an in-home visit with each new Neighbor. Every Volunteer is screened and trained prior to meeting with their match. Volunteers and Neighbors are matched together based on interests, preferences and location in the community.
