The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
OUR ADULT PROGRAM: VaughnGage Holistic Day Program strives to help people remain as independent and living in the community as long as possible. We provide quality care in a safe and supportive setting, where members can actively enjoy the day. The centers offer a unique continuum of care, easing transitions as individual needs change. VaughnGage is a program designed for adults who have medical conditions, physical disabilities, cognitive concerns or difficulties functioning at home. We develop personalized care plans to tailor services and activities to individual needs, interests and abilities. Highly trained staff promote independence and peer relationships, provide social activity opportunities, health monitoring and maintenance services, and nutritional snacks and meals. VaughnGage is the only day center in Jersey Village/Cyfair exclusively for adults with Alzheimer’s or other memory loss conditions. This program offers the benefit of programming designed to maintain and encourage cognitive skills for as long as possible. Description
We provide care during the day for older adults and are looking for energetic, flexible and positive people to spend time with our participants. We do lots of fun activities and need volunteers to help! This is a very hands on position, working directly with our participants. Over the lunch hour volunteers facilitate and serve and then enjoy a complementary meal while socializing with participants.
