This is a Virtual Opportunity, with no fixed address.


Has an older adult been important part of your life? In return, are you willing to provide a listening ear and become a problem solver who can help older adults when their lives get a little complicated?

The Portland area is seeing a dramatic growth in the proportion of the population that are aged 60 & older. Elders in Action is the only programs of its kind using trained volunteers to provide personalize assistance to older adults. Over the last two years, we have helped 5437 individuals & have recouped over $357,000 due to fraud, wrong billing, and other problems.

When an older adult regains stability, it reduces strain on their family & prevents depletion of community resources. Social services to support older adults are being diminished but our purpose is to make sure their quality of life isn’t compromised.

Contact Elders in Action to see the varied and flexible ways to help older adults in our community!
