As a fairly long, very satisfied user of the Friendly Visitor Program, I want to encourage other seniors who find things getting harder to use the program.
It came into being at a time when I had to give up my car, was caring for an increasingly ill spouse, and needed someone besides myself to help handle things. While my first source of help has been my family and friends, they are not always available at those times. The program has handled things quite nicely. I have never been turned down for help and the drivers have all been super nice.
As Warwick’s population grows older, the need for this program grows too. Use it! Support it! Volunteer!
