Wadena County Senior Companion volunteers were recognized recently by Lutheran Social Service Senior Corps.

Senior Companions assist other seniors to remain living independently with weekly visits, taking them to medical appointments, helping with grocery shopping and doing what friends do for friends.


The Senior Companion Program is funded by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Minnesota Board on Aging.
