Community Caregivers of Greater Derry

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 45 people are interested
Light chores

For years many of our elderly and disabled recipients have taken pride in maintaining their homes. Now, because of physical frailty or illnesses they cannot accomplish even the simplest tasks. Volunteers can help with items such as cleaning counter areas, vacuuming, dusting, and laundry. Many combine visiting with the person while doing their tasks. Caregivers seeks to help those who have difficulty maintaining independence and quality of life because they are elderly or temporarily or permanently disabled. Helping with light chores a couple of hours a week allows that elderly or disabled person continue to be proud of and independent in their home environment.
