The Senior Companion Program matches senior volunteers with patients who have difficulty with mental, and physical health to provide in-home companionship, and services for them. My project was to help expand this program to AHS. I had the opportunity to work with behavioral health staff, physicians and the community members to get the program started.
Eye-opening experience with amazing people! I learned a lot of organizational and communication skills while I was working on the program. There are a lot of valuable lessons that I learned from it, and surprisingly, I learned a lot about myself.
