JOLIET – Catholic Charities’ Senior Companion Program (SCP) is a free service available to older adults who are homebound and living in Grundy County.

Senior Companion volunteers provide weekly visits to older adults and provide companionship, occasional transportation to doctor’s appointments or to grocery stores and respite care. If you are living alone and you need companionship or a little extra help to live independently at home, the Senior Companion Program may be able to help you.

If you are caring for a loved one and need a weekly break to run errands or have some personal time, the Senior Companion Program may be able to help you. In Grundy County, call Mari at 815-724-1134 to find out more about the Senior Companion Program.
