ORGANIZATION: Visiting Nurse and Hospice of Fairfield County

  • 11 people are interested

Samaritan Volunteers help home-bound patients with transportation needs such as driving to doctors appointments, running errands or picking up groceries and medical supplies.

As a Samaritan Volunteer, you will use your own vehicle to help support patients and their family members/caregivers and provide them with greater independence and improved quality-of life.

Volunteers are required to attend a fifteen hour training course to learn about the agency and its policies, safety issues, different types of diseases and how best to accommodate patients within the scope of the program. Trainings are held in person every other month. ( July 2022, September 2022 and November 2022.) Please call for specific dates and times. Our office is located in Wilton and you will individually meet with me first.

Volunteers are provided with ongoing support and supervision by the Volunteer Coordinator.

For more information about our volunteer programs, contact Volunteer Coordinator, Stephanie Shaughnessy, at 203-762-8958, ext 316 or
