Snowflake Ball 2021: A fundraiser for the Senior Companion Program

Did you know that 40% of seniors in our community experience isolation on a regular basis? Can you imagine growing older in your home without the support of any family, friends, neighbors, or financial stability?  Who would you call for help? For over 300 seniors in Knox County, the answer is the CAC Senior Companion Program. This unique program mobilizes senior volunteers to provide support to homebound, lonely, and isolated older adults.

The Senior Companion volunteers receive a small stipend for their service which helps them purchase necessities such as food and medicine.  Your donation today will go towards covering the stipend, meals, and transportation costs for Senior Companion Volunteers.

Senior Companions help with many tasks:

  • Preparing Meals
  • Medication Reminders
  • Respite Care
  • Friendship and Companionship

Senior Companions assist:

  • Adults recovering from illness or surgery
  • Hospice patients
  • Individuals who feel alone and isolated
  • Seniors battling dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease

Over 300 seniors are waiting for a Senior Companion in Knox County.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!
