Appalachian Senior Companion Program volunteers do simple chores, provide transportation to medical appointments and offer social contact to the homebound and those in nursing homes or other institutions. The volunteers receive a stipend and transportation and meal reimbursements.

The program serves a five-county area that includes Alleghany, Ashe, Avery, Watauga and Wilkes counties.
