Come, follow me and be a comfort to an elder who is legally blind and hard of hearing; that means they can still see a bit and hear but with difficulty. If you have the patience to speak clearly, read the paper, have a conversation and provide comfort to a lonely, socially isolated neighbor, this is for you.

Requirements to be a great volunteer include:

  • a desire to help others;
  • a pleasant demeanor;
  • a good reading/speaking voice;
  • average reading skills;
  • organizational or planning abilities;
  • a good driving record;
  • a clear criminal history;
  • two references
  • access to a car with proof of insurance;
  • a minimum of $50/100k liability and $5,000 of property damage coverage.
