To participate in our program a senior must be 65 or older. In many cases the application is filled out by the Activity Director of a long-term care facility or a family member who recognizes that their loved one may benefit from having an additional visitor.

1. Application

Fill out our senior application online {link to form} or print one off {PDF Version} and mail it to 807 N Tracy Avenue, Bozeman, MT 59715.

2. Interview

Each senior is personally interviewed at their place of residency. Information gathered during this interview will be used to find a match.

3. Matching Process

There is no firm timeframe to predict how long any individual matching process will take. It is important to remember that seniors are matched with volunteers based on their interests, hobbies, personalities, geographic locations, and myriad other considerations. One senior may be matched within a week or two of joining Befrienders, while other seniors may have to wait longer for a match we believe will be successful.  Our goal for 2020 is to match seniors within, at latest, four weeks after applying to join the program.

4. First Meeting

When meeting your volunteer for the first time, a Befrienders staff person will join you. Our staff will be there to make the introduction, provide contact information to one another, and ensure your next meeting is scheduled prior to leaving.
