Companions for homebound elderly, grandparents as tutors needed

Posted: Wednesday, February 5, 2014 5:00 am

The Senior Companion Program, sponsored by Northern Arizona University, is seeking companions for homebound, frail elderly. If you are over 55 and low-income, your volunteer service will be compensated with a tax-free stipend, mileage and a meal. Your earnings will not affect your Social Security, AHCCCS, Medicaid, food stamps, housing assistance, state compensation, unemployment or retirement benefits. You will also receive a physical and additional accident and auto insurance coverage.
