Friendly Visiting is a meaningful program for older adults and volunteers alike. Our social work team gives expert care to matching DOROT elders who live in Westchester County with adult volunteers who are interested in weekly or monthly visiting. This unique opportunity creates an ongoing, mutually beneficial friendship that brings smiles, excitement and social engagement into the homes of seniors.
DOROT asks interested individuals to agree to a minimum one-year commitment, but many of our Friendly Visiting relationships span multiple years. On visits, older adults and volunteers bridge the generational gap and bond over shared life experiences, hobbies and passions, ideas and opinions, and memories.
