Senior companion program available in two southern W.Va. counties


BECKLEY (WVVA) -- Sometimes when times get tough, all you need is a friend, and that's what Raleigh County is trying to do for its seniors.

They're joining McDowell County and 21 other counties across the state to be part of a senior companion program.

The companion coordinates volunteers to come and spend time with seniors and help them out right in their own homes.

Volunteers must pass a background check and a few other guidelines to participate.

To become a participant or volunteer you can call the Raleigh County Commission on Aging at (304) 255-1397 or 1 (800) 463-4780.
