Friendly Visiting

CMOW’S Friendly Visiting Programs offer seniors and people with disabilities who have limited social interaction an opportunity to connect and socialize with friendly volunteers. Regular visits from caring volunteers, in person or over the telephone, provide friendship and support to our clients.

Let’s Get Together / TeleChat

Clients are matched with volunteers who make weekly visits to their home. Visits may include chatting, reading, looking at old photos or even going for a walk.  If clients would prefer their visit over the phone we also offer TeleChat.  This program is offered free of charge.

Let’s Do Lunch

An opportunity for clients to connect with a volunteer on a regular basis while enjoying a healthy meal together. Weekly lunch visits take place in our clients’ homes, will be social in nature, and foster new friendships, and sharing.  Cost to client is $8.00 (subject to change) to cover the cost of their meal and includes an entrée, soup and dessert.
