St Mary’s Senior Companion Program

This program is located in Grand Junction, CO. Senior companions provide support and friendship to those who need assistance with shopping, errands and other everyday tasks necessary in maintaining independence. Without this help, many older adults would be forced to leave their homes for assisted living facilities or nursing homes. In Mesa county, seniors 55 years and older, receive help and friendship through St. Mary's Senior Companion Program.
