Friendly Visitor Program

RSVP and Warren and Washington Counties Offices for the Aging have developed a Friendly Visitor Program. Many seniors are isolated and a weekly visit between a friendly visitor and an older friend is special; each brings unique talents, experiences and creativity to the friendship. The fruits of this exchange are joys and memories that last a lifetime.
