Care at Home New Jersey helps socially isolated, homebound seniors. As part of our program, we give our clients free, easy to use computers that they can use to stay connected with family and friends through email and Skype.
We send volunteers to spend time with these seniors, to keep them company, and also to help and encourage them to use the computer we have given them. We want them to get comfortable reaching out to family and friends through the computer. The computer is specially designed for seniors and is easy to navigate.
Volunteer hours are flexible and are arranged between the volunteer and the client, but we do like to have a minimum regular once a week commitment for an hour or two. Initially we do a short training to aquaint the volunteer with the computer, which is very easy to use.
