Senior Companions of South Dakota is a volunteer program that provides in-home assistance and respite care to the elderly and disabled in more than 50 communities across South Dakota.

Senior Companion activities might include:

♦ meal planning and preparation
♦ light housekeeping
♦ playing cards
♦ reminiscing or just enjoying the friendship of a peer.
Senior Companion volunteers receive an hourly stipend, mileage reimbursement, meal allowances and other benefits. These benefits do not reduce any governmental assistance and are not taxable. The Senior Companion is valuable in the care and support of our clients, especially in our rural communities. There is no charge for our services to the client or a client’s family.
