Peer Support is a helping process designed to support and enhance the social and mental well-being of individuals who are facing life transitions and challenges.
Peer Support services address these needs for aging adults and seniors by providing confidential, no-cost, one-to-one support with the help of trained volunteers – the peer support volunteers.
Who Are the Peer Support Volunteers?
The Peer Support Volunteers are volunteers 55 years and older who are interested in the well-being of aging adults in the Century House community. Peer Support volunteers are good listeners. Their personal experience and the training they receive enables them to better understand the problems and needs of the senior they are helping.
The Peer Support Volunteers are there to offer:
- Listening and emotional support
- Empathy and guidance
- Information and outreach
- Exploration of possibilities
- Assistance in setting goals
