On Sunday, the Polish ministry said that 2,225 people have volunteered so far to join the Solidarity Corps.
The group's activities will focus on helping the elderly with shopping, pet walking or making a doctor's appointment.
The body will be supported by scouts, soldiers of the Territorial Defence Force and social care workers.
The initiative's aim is to discourage seniors from leaving their homes in a bid to slow down the spread of the new coronavirus.
New coronavirus measures
At a press conference on Friday, Poland's Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki announced tougher measures to deal with a recent surge in coronavirus cases in the country.
The government appealed to people aged over 70 not to leave their homes unless necessary and launched a special hotline for the elderly.
At the Friday conference, PM Morawiecki announced the establishment of the Solidarity Corps for the Support of Seniors, a special group aimed at supporting the elderly in running everyday errands.
Seniors are reported to be at much higher risk for developing serious symptoms of the new coronavirus infection.
