Companion for Life 2017 Presentations

Earlier this month, Companion For Life made presentations at two local independent living facilities for older adults. The first was at Arbor Cove in Santa Cruz and the other was at Via Pacifica Gardens in Aptos. It was a pleasure meeting good people and talking about how our nonprofit program benefits low income seniors and how the Philips Lifeline service helps maintain independence in one's own home.

If you are interested in having a Companion for Life/Philips Lifeline representative do a presentation at your facility, please call our office at (831) 688-9217 and schedule an appointment.

Thank you.
