We interview Lori Klivak, Director of Senior Services, and Ellen Schwartz, Senior Companion Program Coordinator with Interfaith Works. Lori and Ellen talk with us about the Senior Companions program in Madison County, aimed at helping to combat loneliness break the cycle of isolation in our aging community. Lori and Ellen break down what it requires to be a volunteer for the program, as well and share touching stories of how this “matchmaking” program has helped to uplift the lives of local seniors. We also touch on volunteerism itself, and why offering your time and talents helps more than just the person on the receiving end.
