Senior Peer Counseling
Volunteer Senior Peer Counselors are caring individuals who offer empathetic listening and support to help other seniors share concerns, and gain a healthier perspective and better emotional balance. Senior Peer Counselors are all seniors themselves who volunteer their time to visit other seniors in their homes, providing 12 sessions of supportive counseling free of cost. All Senior Peer Counselors have completed training and receive ongoing supervision by a licensed professional. Support groups for Senior Men and Senior Women are also offered at various locations in Sonoma County.
For more information or to request services call the Senior Peer Counseling intake line at 823-1640 ext. 380.

We’re All in the Same Boat
The West County Community Services staff held their November all-staff meeting last week. At the monthly meetings, the staff report to each other about their activities. And a member of one of the Divisions will often present information helpful to the work done by all the staff.
Just to…feel heard…can be helpful.
