Volunteers are matched one-to-one with older and disabled adult program participants, whom we refer to as "Neighbors", to assist with their specific needs. Many of our Neighbors look forward to the shopping trips not only to purchase needed groceries and household supplies but also for your companionship. In addition to the ride, Neighbors may need light assistance and help in carrying bags. Others may be physically unable to shop even with assistance, and Volunteers are asked to follow the Neighbor’s shopping list. The Volunteer is a critical link between Aster and our homebound Neighbors. Volunteers work under the supervision of the Neighbors Program Coordinator who provides orientation and guidance as needed.

About Aster Aging

Location:

Mission Statement

Our mission is to empower and support East Valley older adults and their families to remain independent and engaged in our communities.

Description

Aster Aging is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has been dedicated to serving our community since 1979. Aster provides a full continuum of programs and services aimed at independence with dignity as older adults and families navigate the sometimes challenging journey of aging. We achieve this through five core programs: (1) Center-Based Services are provided at our two senior centers in Mesa at Red Mountain and Mesa Downtown. Services include congregate meals, health and wellness, education and social activities. (2) Meals on Wheels offers nutritious meals for isolated homebound older or disabled adults. (3) In-Home Support assist physically challenged individuals. Volunteer Services match homebound neighbors with caring volunteers for essential transportation, grocery shopping, and friendly visits. Home care provides respite, personal care and housekeeping through trained direct care workers. (4) Outreach/Social Services Program assists older adults and their families in navigating and accessing needed social services, benefits and health resources. (5) Contracted Programs enable Aster to provide elements of our quality core programs in partnership with other organizations.
