Do you like meeting new people?
Do you enjoy playing cards, learning about people's history, taking a walk in the park or going out for ice cream?If you said "yes", then becoming a Friendly Visitor for one of our elderly homebound clients could be a perfect match for you.
This is a wonderful opportunity to alleviate the loneliness that many older adults feel. When they become advanced in age, friends pass away. They may not be able to visit with the ones who are still alive. They can't drive or their friends can't. Friends move away to be closer to children or they move to older adult communities, too far away to visit.
We hope that you can fill the gap of lost friendships for one of our clients.
>We can place Friendly Visitors all over the Greater Richmond area, but presently we are in particular need of volunteers who can visit in Mechanicsville, North Chesterfield, Midlothian.<</strong>
