CAREGIVERS:Volunteers Assisting The Elderly

CAREGIVERS was founded in 1984 and has provided support for thousands of seniors. One of our essential programs is the Hospital to Home program. A CAREGIVERS volunteer provides basic assistance to seniors returning home after a hospital stay. The support generally extends over a six to nine-week period. The volunteer aids with kind acts, such as meal preparation, basic household tasks, and transportation to medical appointments. A volunteer is matched with the senior based on compatibility and location. You may assist this senior in brief period of special need, but the impact you make will be lasting. If you feel this is a way you can make a meaningful difference, we hope to hear from you.
