Caring Companions

Caring Companion

Caring Companions is a volunteer based program of Area 10 Agency on Aging and is committed to helping seniors in Monroe and Owen Counties live healthy, happy lives and to remain independent for as long as possible. We thoughtfully match volunteers with “neighbors” who desire assistance. Our Companions choose the services they offer, and our neighbors select from a variety of those services:

  • Friendly visiting
  • Shopping assistance
  • Telephone reassurance
  • Light housekeeping
  • Running errands
  • Gardening & yard work
  • Sharing interests/hobbies
  • Light meal preparation
  • House plant care
  • Pet care / dog walking
  • Safety education
  • Mental stimulation
  • & much more!




If you are interested in participating in the Caring Companions, either as a volunteer companion or a neighbor, please contact us at (812) 876-3383.

Your schedule, services and level of commitment are entirely flexible. We offer training and support to insure your experience is rewarding and works well for you.


Volunteering is a valuable experience. People I meet are amazing and inspiring; it is a joy to listen to them. Their kindness warms my heart and makes me grateful to see them. They are my friends.Cathie
