We are looking for volunteers to be matched with elderly clients to visit in their homes for two hours a week. Sometimes this is provide a break to a family caregiver so that they can get out for awhile, or it might be a visit to an isolated senior in need of socialization. No special skills needed, just a desire to help others. We match our volunteers carefully and make sure they share interests with whoever we match them with.
Current needs include: someone who doesn't mind the smell of smoke in a home, someone who might like to take a client out of the house for outings, someone to visit with someone who is lonely and enjoys making jewelry.
