My name is Mary, and I've lived in Longmont my whole life. I just returned to CO after my first year of school at Stanford. This year at Stanford, I joined a group called Mon Ami - a college student companionship service for seniors. As a companion, I would spend time with a lovely woman named Doris who lived in an assisted living facility. Although Doris had around-the-clock care, social engagement and quality 1 on 1 time usually fell through the cracks. So my role was simply to be Doris's friend. We took walks around the block, read books, or just sat and told stories. I was blown away by the close bond we formed and how much of an impact our short visits had!
Now, I'm home for the summer and taking on the exciting challenge of bringing Mon Ami to Boulder and surrounding areas. Please spread the word to anyone who might benefit from hiring a young, enthusiastic activity companion for themselves or their loved one. We provide activity companionship for seniors for $25/hour with no minimum hourly basis. Reach out to me or check out our website if you want to know more :) https://www.monami.io/
