(google map)

compensation: $14 per hour to start
employment type: part-time

Are you retired or semi-retired? Are you at the stage of your life where you would you like to give back in a meaningful way and supplement your income with part-time, flexible work?

If so, Seniors Helping SeniorsĀ® may be the opportunity for you!

Seniors Helping SeniorsĀ®' simple yet innovative model - peers helping peers - provides seniors who are still active a worthwhile way to enhance the quality of life of those they are supporting.

With a lifetime of personal and professional experiences, our older adult helpers relate on a truly interpersonal level, making the whole process of helping and getting help more meaningful and dignifying.

What do our care partners do? We fight loneliness. We help seniors engage in activities that they once enjoyed but no longer can do alone. We engage them in conversation. We take them out to reconnect with and enjoy their neighborhood. We have lunch. We go to the symphony. We help seniors who are socially isolated reconnect.

So who comprises our team of helping professionals? Our caring and devoted team of men and women come from a diverse range of professional backgrounds: retired teachers, nurses, lawyers, accountants, to name a few. Really any older adult who shows compassion, good judgment, and the desire to give back.

While our staff are compensated for their time, this is an opportunity to perhaps try something different, step out of your comfort zone, and connect with peers in a different and meaningful way for both of you.

Seniors Helping SeniorsĀ® offers:
*Flexible schedules from 6 or 8 hours a week up to 30+ hours
*An interesting and diverse client base
*A friendly group of peers to work with
*Continuing education opportunities and fun networking/social events
*An excellent hourly wage while doing satisfying work
