Stepping Forward with Friendship and Service
For information during the COVID-19 outbreak, please follow the link below:
For the well-being of our seniors and community, the Friendly Visitor program is on hold. Please check our site regularly for updates.
Are you an older adult who would like to have a weekly visitor to talk to, share a cup of coffee, play a game of cards, and or take a walk with? A Meals on Wheels Orange County’s Friendly Visitor could be the right fit for you. Or, do you know of someone who is still living independently, but is lonely and could use some companionship? A Friendly Visitor could be a help to your family member or friend.
Friendly Visitor volunteers, visit with older adults who are in need of companionship, support, and socialization in the comfort of their own homes. The weekly visit will give the homebound senior a sense of connection to the world around them. This service is provided at no cost, and Meals on Wheels Orange County Friendly Visitors are just good, kind people who want to help seniors in their community.
**Please note, every Friendly Visitor is screened and interviewed by a Meals on Wheels Orange County staff member and/or Regional Volunteer Leader.
