Respite Volunteer - Training Provided
Description: Make a difference in the lives of seniors and their primary caregivers - volunteer today to provide respite care! Respite volunteers spend quality time with seniors, helping them enjoy their favorite activities, while their primary caregivers take time for themselves. An afternoon providing respite might include helping a senior complete a craft project, going for a walk, reading together, watching a movie, or other activities enjoyed by the senior.
