Becoming a friendly neighbor with Traditions Health

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Traditions Health

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.

Do you find yourself with some free time on your hands and have that feeling you want to make a differece in the lives of your neighors around you? You can!

Traditions Health in Ridgeland, MS has many opportunities to become a "friendly neighor". We are looking for volunteers who would like to sit with patients for a few hours to give their caregiver a break.

What does a break mean? You are allowing the caregiver, who may have burn out, a chance to step out of the house for a short amount of time and do something for themselves such as, getting their hair done, going to the grocery store, have lunch with a friend and so much more.

What will I be doing with the patient? You will be the eyes of care while the caregiver is gone. That means you can sit with the patient and watch tv, read a book, or if the patient is sleeping, you are there to make sure all is well.
