Senior Peer Counseling Program

Provides preventative education and services to support the wellness and self-sufficiency of the older adults of Placer County.

As we age, life transitions can sometimes be painful.  The loss of a lifetime companion, medical illness, physical disability, retirement, or 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.

Senior Peer Counselor volunteers provide in-home counseling for residents of Placer County aged 55 and older.

The content of the counseling is confidential and Senior Peer Counseling is a free service.

  Who are Senior Peer Counselors? 

Senior Peer Counselors are older adults who are carefully selected, professionally trained, and certified to provide volunteer supportive counseling to other seniors with aging concerns.

Senior Peer Counselors receive 30 hours of training, weekly supervision by mental health professionals, and regular ongoing training.

Senior Peer Counselors will listen, support, and gently coach you to reach your own solution.

  • Family conflicts
