The goal of the Blue Ridge Chapter Friendly Visitor Program is to provide companionship and emotional support to people with MS who are living in assisted living facilities or nursing homes. Participants are encouraged to take part in mutually enjoyable activities such as reading, arts and crafts, games, or simply having great conversation. Friendly Visitors do not provide health care or transportation services.
