The Amesbury Council on Aging is seeking volunteers for its “Friendly Visitors” program. Under the program, the council pairs the volunteers with homebound adults for scheduled visits one to three times per week, for an hour or more. The volunteers help meet social needs, help caregivers, and sometimes run errands (no transporting of people) for those with whom they are paired up. Those interested are asked to contact Lee Ford, friendly visitor coordinator, at 978-388-8138 on Friday mornings, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
