A friendly visit
“One visit per week from a Volunteer Caregiver can prevent an elderly person from having to move out of their home.” Social Worker, Rex Home Health Services

We have three different programs that we use to assist seniors and adults with disabilities: transportation, in-home connections, and caregiver respite.

In-Home Connections volunteers visit seniors and adults with disabilities in their homes and on the phone who are isolated, offering support and friendship. Volunteers also can help around the house with some household chores and paperwork assistance. Volunteers are matched one-on-one with a care receiver. Volunteers set their own schedule and typically serve 4-6 hours a month.

About The Center for Volunteer Caregiving

Location:

1150 SE Maynard RD, Suite 210, Cary, NC 27511, US

Mission Statement

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.

Description

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.
