"Our volunteer is very happy...(she) really has no friends and to talk to someone other than a doctor is very good...I can't thank you enough"

A Caregiver Respite volunteer provide companionship to a care receiver who cannot be left alone, allowing their full-time family caregiver a much-needed break. Volunteers are paired with a family and typically serve 6-8 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.
