Community Caregivers

  • 41 people are interested
Friends for Life!

Community Caregivers provides non-medical support services to help people stay independent and in their homes. Many of the people who need our assistance are older adults. We offer our services through a dedicated network of volunteers.

We match clients and volunteers in their own communities (Albany & Rensselaer Counties). As a volunteer, you can help by: giving a ride to a medical appointment, friendly phone call, or shopping for someone.

This can be once a month or every week; it’s up to you! We offer flexibility to fit your busy schedule.

We can help more people if you join us! And you will feel great knowing how a small service can make a big difference in someone's life. We arrange all the requests through the office.
