VULNERABLE ADULT CARE ADVOCATES INC

We are Vulnerable Adult Care Advocates, Inc.(VACA)an agency that serves senior citizens with dementia and other incapacitated adults.

Our mission is to empower incapacitated adults to realize better medical and social outcomes through our volunteer guardianship and supported decision making programs. Many of our clients are socially isolated and the only people they see each day are the staff at the nursing facilities. This does not provide the socialization they so desperately need.

This is why we need you to be a friend to an older adult. Volunteers will visit to have a cup of coffee, tea, play cards, take a walk and/or just chat. Volunteers will also take this time to speak with the staff at the facility to report any medication, status or personality changes since the last visit to the Program Director.

Because we are specifically helping such a vulnerable population, volunteers need to be flexible with visits, as some times they will need to be conducted virtually or via telephone due to changing COVID-19 restrictions.

We only ask for a half hour a week.

Volunteers can be from 18 to 80.
