Support and Visit Seniors in Multnomah County
19 people are interested
Metropolitan Family Service is seeking volunteers who are interested in supporting and visiting with clients of the Public Guardian Program
The Public Guardian Program obtains and implements court-appointed guardianship and/or conservatorship for people who have limited mental capacity, are unable to care for themselves or were previously at high risk due to abuse or self-neglect. Volunteers support this program by carrying out tasks to support clients in their daily lives or through visits and community engagement. Volunteer activities may include: in-home visits for socialization and to enhance client well-being; accompanying clients to routine medical appointments; shopping for and with clients; assisting with transitions to new living environments; and providing other support and quality of life enhancements.
There is an average of four to eight hours per week expectation and we ask volunteers to commit to one year of service. Volunteer hours are served on weekdays.
Volunteer activities vary based on the client served and tasks are delegated by Public Guardian staff. Volunteers will spend some of their time in the Public Guardian office located downtown, and out in the community visiting clients where they reside. Volunteers are expected to track availability and tasks through online systems such as Google calendar and shared spreadsheets.
