What if you needed help and there was no one there to assist you? Right now there are people in your area that need help making basic life decisions. As a Volunteer Guardian you can make a world of difference to your neighbor in need.
A guardian is someone who has been appointed by the court to make decisions and take actions for another person who is not able to make decisions for themselves. A guardian is not a caregiver but makes arrangements to ensure the person receives the proper level and type of care, soliciting as much input from the person as possible.
Someone who is currently is need of a guardian is "Ana"
"Ana" is in her mid-30's and currently residing in a care facility due to mental, physical, and developmental disabilities. Ana is originally from the Dominican Republic and, although she speaks and understands English, a bilingual volunteer would be ideal. Ana has few visitors and is frequently alone and unengaged. However, when someone shows interest, she can describe what she likes and wants, which includes reading books in Spanish, cleaning the common area, and browsing her phone. Ana urgently needs someone to visit her consistently and to be a responsible point person for her medical and psychological care in order to maximize her opportunities for independence and increased quality of life.
If you are interested in making a difference in someone's life and would like to become a volunteer guardian for "Ana", please contact us.
