Appalachian Region serves 6 counties, Anderson, Cherokee, Greenville, Oconee, Pickens, and Spartanburg.

Over sixty percent (60%) of the residents of long term care facilities in South Carolina have no visitors. They have no family or friends available to visit them or spend time with them. A lack of social contact and a support system often results in depression and decline.

The Appalachian Council of Governments is looking for volunteers who enjoy visiting with others, improving lives through communication, and have as little as on 4 hours per month available to join the team and enrich the lives of the long term care community.

By volunteering, you will help to diminish the sense of isolation that long term care residents experience and help them achieve a sense of self-determination.

Volunteers must be 18 years of age or older, have the ability to maintain confidentiality, and do not have a criminal record.
