In home support seeks to alleviate social isolation and depression that often accompanies the physical and emotional challenges facing older adults and adults with disabilities who are homebound. Volunteers provide friendly visits in person or on the telephone. In addition volunteers can provide chore services. This includes light housekeeping or reading/paperwork or yardwork.
Some assignments may also be suitable for pairs, teams, or families to perform.
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.
