Caregiver Respite Volunteer

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: Jewish Family Service of MetroWest, NJ

Caring for a loved one with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or another chronic illness is one of the most selfless things we can do, but it can also be exhausting.


Through Jewish Family Service of MetroWest’s Respite program, volunteers support caregivers by visiting their loved ones for 2-3 hours once a week or every other week. Each volunteer is matched with a caregiver and their loved one to provide companionship, socialization, and activities such as reading books, watching movies, or playing games depending on the person’s abilities. This allows the caregiver a break while the care recipient still has safety and supervision.


Volunteers must complete a background check. Training on working with clients with Alzheimer’s, dementia, or another chronic illness is provided.

This service is supported by a grant from The JFNA Center on Holocaust Survivor Care and Institute on Aging and Trauma.
