We have three different programs that we use to assist seniors and adults with disabilities: transportation, in-home connections, and caregiver respite. All of our services are provided at no charge by volunteers. We are in need of transportation volunteers all across Wake County. Transportation volunteers provide escorted round-trip rides for those who don't drive, can't use public transportation, and have no one to help. To help with this vital service the volunteer would need a car, a good driving record, and 2-4 hours of time per ride. Volunteers determine when and how often they drive.
About The Center for Volunteer Caregiving
1150 SE Maynard RD, Suite 210, Cary, NC 27511, US
The Center for Volunteer Caregiving is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization whose mission is to engage the diverse Wake County community by providing volunteer service solutions in an inclusive and welcoming environment to improve the lives of seniors, family 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 and must attend a virtual orientation session. Please visit our website: www.volunteercaregiving.org
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.
