Recognition Event for Senior Companion Program 

Special thanks today for some folks who are always giving to others.The annual recognition event was held for the UMaine Cooperative Extension Senior Companion Program.Senior companions are fifty-five or older and offer their assistance to other senior citizens who are home bound or isolated.The program lets them remain independent.”I think it does so much for so many people. Not only the companions who are going to visit the folks but the people that are lonely and isolated. It gives them something to look forward to.”Deb Eckart says if it weren’t for the senior companions some of the folks in the program wouldn’t be able to live alone.
