"A home."  That short phrase, uttered by senior citizens, is not a pleasant concept.

The majority of senior citizens would rather live their later years in their own houses, not "a home." 

The national Senior Companion program pairs seniors who need some assistance at home--their own homes--with other seniors who are prepared to help. 

And the Lane County Senior Companion program is seeking volunteers. 

Director Beth Brooks joins us to talk about the program's workings and benefits.
