Friendship Centers of Lee County
||Friendship Centers' mission addresses the concerns of isolation and loneliness that so many Florida elders feel due to living alone or having their families elsewhere. We dedicate ourselves to helping older adults live with dignity and respect in the least restrictive setting by providing services that address their needs, including remaining independent, preventing premature institutionalization, relieving isolation and loneliness, and improving seniors' quality of life and health. We help seniors live longer, healthier, happier lives by providing these services- Adult and Alzheimer's Day Services, Case Management, In-Home Care, Senior Health Clinics, Home Delivered Meals, Friendship Dining Sites, Americorps Programs that reach out to elderly, VolunteerLee Resource Center housing RSVP, Volunteer Center of Lee County, and RELIEF Volunteer Respite Program.
