    Generally speaking that’s what bikkur cholim does, send volunteers to cheer people up. They don’t have to be sick, just need company for whatever reason (elderly, depressed etc.) However, they do depend on volunteers so they may not cover as much so they’d like to. Just pick up the phone and ask them.

    I’m not sure where you live but you may try to contact a local girls high school – they usually have girls going to visit people.

    Try this lady. They do the visits for Holocaust survivors, but I am sure that she would know other similar chessed orgs.
