What Amia Friends Are Saying
“I truly enjoy our visit. My visits with M reminded me of cherished visits with my mother. So precious. Thank you so much for the opportunity to meet an incredible 101-year old vibrant woman. It was an honor! I will love visiting with her again!
“Amia is great. They followed-up with me personally and are adamant that I should enjoy my experience as a Friend. They responded to every question I had. Their website is very helpful, too.
“As I was leaving, M said that she was honored that I came to spend time with her — the honor was mine.
How to Be a Friend
Friends visit with seniors and focus exclusively on social and emotional interactions for elders.
Friends do not provide any physical care.
No previous experience required. Set your own schedule and hourly rate.
Run A Background Check
You must pass the background check to post a profile. You pay ($19.95) for the background check. SentryLink will send it directly to Amia.
Create Your Profile
We know you are amazing! Tell us about yourself. Add a photo and short video. Families search the profiles to find a good match for their loved ones.
Go through the Amia Orientation
The orientation will teach you to connect with elders by giving you ideas, suggestions, guidelines, and requirements for visits.
Interview with families online. Get hired. Families schedule visits for their Loved One through your profile calendar.
Visit with the Elder
Make a difference in the day of a lonely elder! Plus, it’s fun. Provide conversation, social connection, and activities.
Submit a Visit Report
Tell the Family about the visit and their Loved One through our Visit Report.
Families pay you directly through PayPal. How cool is that!
Visit with the Elder Again
Make long-term connections with the Elders and the Family.
