Senior Companions

Since 1981 the Senior Companion Program has been providing assistance and friendship to older adults and adults with disabilities to help them remain independent in their own homes at no cost. Senior Companions also provide respite for family members who are caregivers. 

KC Shepherd’s Center matches Senior Companions and homebound clients in Jackson County, Missouri. Senior Companions spend 15-30 hours a week providing critical in-home companionship to their homebound clients and their families. Their companionship helps seniors stay in their homes, reduces dangerous social isolation, and allows caregivers time to take care of important family business. The strength of this program is “neighbor helping neighbor.”
