I'm interesting in starting a senior companion business to take seniors out for meals, to the movies, grocery shopping, to the barber or hair salon. This service will only be for seniors who are able to walk without assistance.
Go to http://www.score.org/ to find the nearest SCORE chapter. In the upper left hand corner is a box to enter your zip code. Your nearest SCORE chapter will be on the next screen. Contact them to arrange for a free one on one meeting with a SCORE counselor about starting a senior companion business.
