About

The Carter Burden Network is dedicated to supporting the efforts of older people to remain in their homes living independently, safely, and with dignity. Volunteers are an integral component of the Carter Burden Network's 40+ years of success. No matter your age, experience or schedule, CBCAcan accommodate your needs to ensure that you have a meaningful and effective volunteer experience.

The Friendly Visiting program matches volunteers with seniors who share common interests and hobbies for social interaction. Volunteers participate in visits at least twice a month (for 1-2 hours) in a senior's home and may chat, play a game, read a book, take a walk (if the senior is able), or another activity. The Friendly Visiting program is an on-going opportunity.

We are looking for a compassionate, patient, and committed volunteer comfortable engaging with a deaf senior living in the Upper East Side. Time is flexible but we are looking for a volunteer available in the afternoons (preferably between noon and 6pm).
