For over 25 years, our volunteers have provided older neighbors with friendly calls, visits, transportation to medical appointments, and grocery shopping. We are now a proud AmeriCorps Senior partner .With just a little extra help from our volunteers, clients remain independent and in their own homes. We provide our services at no cost in Albany and Rensselaer Counties. As we work with a vulnerable population, we can only approve volunteers who are fully immunized for COVID-19.
Here are some ways in which a volunteer can help:
Transportation: Rides to essential medical appointments and grocery stores..
Shopping: Accompanying a neighbor to the store or doing the shopping from a client’s list for groceries, prescriptions and personal items.
Friendly Phone Calls: Reassurance phone calls to provide an opportunity for conversation and socialization. Like a "friendly visit" but over the phone.
Friendly Home Visits: Weekly or biweekly visits to homebound people to provide social contact, as well as emotional and psychological support. Visits may include trips out into the community for activities (walks, local events, etc.)
Occasional Chores: Lawnmowing, assistance with household organization
