About the Program
Senior Peer Counseling is a free, voluntary, peer support, in-home program for Placer County residents aged 55 years or better, who are dealing with age-related adjustment issues.
When is the last time someone really listened to you? As we age, life transitions can sometimes be painful or difficult to adjust to. The loss of a companion, medical diagnosis, physical disability, or retirement and relocation can be upsetting. Sometimes it is helpful to talk with someone near your age. A peer can help you address these transitional concerns in a safe, confidential, environment. Peer Counselors work with people in the community on issues such as grief, caregiver stress, change in their sense of independence, family conflict, loneliness, situational depression or anxiety, change in health, or other age related concern.
Senior Peer Counselor volunteers provide in-home peer support for residents of Placer County aged 55 and better. Senior Peer Counseling is a free, confidential service. Watch a brief video about the Senior Peer Counseling Program:
