We ensure safety of home-bound, isolated elderly through friendship and by being a good neighbor. Our volunteers receive training to recognize elder abuse and neglect and learn about community resources so that we may protect our elderly.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office Good Neighbor Program was established in 2017 to reach out to isolated, home-bound seniors. Our Good Neighbor volunteers build friendships with our elderly. So far, we have reached out to over 300 seniors in our community.
