As we grow older, things we used to take for granted become even more important to us, including being able to stay active in our own homes and be surrounded by friends. That’s the idea behind the Senior Companions program at Good Samaritan Society. Senior companions serve statewide helping seniors in their homes and Kristin Fox, director of Senior Companions of South Dakota, says she has seen firsthand how the program improves the health and well-being of everyone involved.
