About

Description: Give full time caregivers a break by visiting with seniors. Caregivers give their time and energy to keep their loved ones healthy and safe, but this responsibility can take its toll. Respite volunteers allow caregivers to take time for themselves to take care of errands, get caught up on chores, or simply relax and have time to themselves.

About Us: East Side Elders helps our seniors live full and rewarding lives - in the home and community they want - for as long as possible and as healthy and well as possible. Our teams of volunteers, students and community members provide a wide range of services and activities that give the necessary support and resources to our elderly neighbors wherever they call home.

Hours: 2-4 hours per week, time is flexible

Qualifications:

  • Must pass a background check

  • Must be willing to learn about helping seniors with memory loss or other issues

  • Able to communicate with people from diverse backgrounds in a caring, courteous manner

  • At least 18 years old


Benefits:

  • Gain experience working with seniors and people dedicated to helping seniors

  • Make a difference in the lives of seniors in the community

  • Learn about the challenges and joys of caregiving
