Autumn is Rolling In, Come and Brighten the Lives of Older Adults.
COMMUNITY AGENCY FOR SENIOR CITIZENS INC
We are Community Agency for Senior Citizens, Inc.(CASC)an agency that serves homebound older adults. CASC has been in Staten Island in the same location for 46 years.
Our mission is to keep older adults in their homes for as long as possible. Many of our clients are socially isolated and the only person they see each day is the driver who comes to drop off their Meals-on-Wheels. This does not provide the socialization they so desperately need.
This is why we need you to be a friend to an older adult. At this time it is just about have making a simple phone call since everyone is under shelter in place. But once this health crisis of the COVID-19 Volunteers will be able to resume being able to visit and have a cup of coffee, tea, play cards, take a walk and/or just chat.
These telephone chats can be short and brief to someone who is feeling very alone and isolated.
We only ask for an hour per week.
Volunteers can be from 18 to 80.
To find out more about this opportunity please contact Rosanne McAllister 718-981-6226 ext. 141.
