Volunteers provide support to families that are caring for a loved one with dementia or a disabling condition. The Center’s Caregiver Support Program provides two services:
1) companionship to someone who should not be left alone. 2)respite or "time off" for primary caregivers who need to focus on their own health and well-being.
Respite volunteers can visit or share activities for 2-4 hours with someone coping with chronic conditions including stroke, Alzheimer’s, MS, and visual impairment. Volunteers are generally given a steady assignment to a particular family to develop relationships.
The Center for Volunteer Caregiving is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage the community in providing volunteer services to improve the lives of seniors, caregivers and adults with disabilities.
The Center recruits volunteers to help seniors (age 60+) and adults with disabilities, living at home, with tasks they can no longer do for themselves. Assistance includes respite care to family caregivers, friendly visits to the homebound, transportation for essential needs (e.g. medical appointments, food), and light chore services. We do not provide personal care or services of a medical or healthcare nature.
All volunteers undergo a criminal background check, character reference check, and must attend an orientation session. Group orientations sessions are generally scheduled monthly and ONLINE ORIENTATION is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Please visit our website: www.volunteercaregiving.org
Our mission is to serve in all parts of Wake County to the extent that we can find volunteers.
In addition to individual volunteers, we welcome businesses and faith organizations to contact us about how we can create satisfying volunteer opportunities for their employees and members.
