Congratulations to our 9 new Senior Peer Counselors who graduated on May 1st, 2018!
We recruit and train seniors as peer counselors to work with other seniors who are struggling with issues of aging and need support in navigating the many challenges and transitions they face. The training is 35 hours over a period of 3 1/2 months and is provided by the licensed mental health staff who oversee the SPC program.
Our volunteer Senior Peer Counselors are caring individuals who offer non-judgmental empathetic listening and support to help seniors retain a healthier perspective and better emotional balance. 12 sessions of supportive counseling are provided in the client’s home, free of cost. Services are available county wide.
