Senior Corps Senior Companion of the Year
Lizzie Scott, Senior Services of Southeastern Virginia, Norfolk
For the seniors in Lizzie Scott’s community, she provides so much more than companionship. Her dedication to service has enabled individuals to stay in their own homes and live independently. Mrs. Scott, who has volunteered with some of her clients for more than five years, transports them to medical appointments and errands, makes sure their pantries have plenty of food, and helps out doing light meal preparation and housework. She also links clients with much needed community resources. For one client, she provided assistance when faced with issues regarding their funeral preparations. Not only did she makes sure her client could work out final details with the funeral home, but she contacted several local agencies to help with her client’s financial details. For nearly 20 years, Ms. Scott has been tirelessly dedicated to the needs of seniors in her community – making a real difference in their lives and lifestyles.
