Referrals needed for free senior peer counseling and Friendly Visitors

CLEARLAKE – Do you know seniors who are isolated or at-risk? Or seniors who would appreciate talking over the challenges of aging with someone who understands and can help with practical solutions?


If so, please refer them to the Konocti Senior Support Inc. This organization provides free peer counseling throughout Lake County and administers the Friendly Visitor Program in South County.


“Recipients of senior peer counseling, mostly home-bound, benefit from talking with people who have experienced life changes and understand their concerns,” said Lawrence Grant, board president, Konocti Senior Support Inc.


Volunteer peer counselors receive training and have ongoing group supervision and support by Clinical Consultant Kim Baughan Young, Marriage Family Therapist.


The Friendly Visitor Program offers friendship, understanding and companionship on a regular basis to south county seniors having limited access to outside activities. Volunteers are trained and participate in monthly supervision meetings.


Konocti Senior Support Inc., incorporated in 1995, is a nonprofit public service corporation dedicated to enhancing seniors’ quality of life. All services are free.


For more information, contact Gwen Snyder at (707) 995-1417.
