"I have long admired the work of the CAC, and specifically the Office on Aging. The partnership between the office, and the UT College of Social Work, where I work, has been invaluable. I am so happy to support the CSW alumni and current students that work at the CAC, and I am especially proud to support the cause of meeting the needs of the older adult population." Tony Murchison

Story

Did you know that 40% of seniors in our community experience isolation on a regular basis? Can you imagine growing older in your home without the support of any family, friends, neighbors, or financial stability? Whom would you call for help?

For over 300 seniors in Knox County, the answer is the CAC Senior Companion Program. This unique program mobilizes senior volunteers to provide support to homebound, lonely, and isolated older adults - free of charge.

The Senior Companion volunteers receive a small stipend for their service which helps them purchase necessities such as food and medicine. Your donation today will go towards covering the stipend, meals, and transportation costs for Senior Companion Volunteers.

For more information, please visit our website or email us at [email protected]

Senior Companions help with many tasks:

Preparing Meals, Medication Reminders, Respite Care, Friendship, Companionship, and much more.

Senior Companions assist seniors who are:

Recovering from illness or surgery, hospice patients, lonely and isolated, and seniors battling dementia or Alzheimer’s disease.

Over 200 seniors are waiting for a Senior Companion in Knox County.
