National Service Agency Honors Eileen Nelsen, Outstanding Senior Corps Senior Companion Volunteer, With 2006 Spirit of Service Award

 

Release Date: 6/20/2006
   
Photo Caption: On June 20, 2006, the Corporation for National and Community Service honored Eileen Nelsen with a 2006 Spirit of Service Award for her hard work and dedication as an outstanding Senior Corps Senior Companion Volunteer. After her husband of 40 years died in March 2002, Ms. Nelsen started volunteering as a way of keeping busy, and signed on as a Senior Companion with the Lutheran Social Service program. Many of her clients are lonely because their families live far away and they have no one to visit them. Her activities range from taking them to the grocery and medical appointments to enjoying meals and card games together. In addition to her duties as a Senior Companion, Ms. Nelson also serves as a Senior Leader for a group of eight other Senior Companions. She keeps track of each Companion’s clients, reporting any needs or concerns to the local case manager. She also handles referrals, matching new clients with Senior Companions.
