Mission Statement

Helping seniors to live independently.

Description

The SDS Elder Help Volunteer Program recruits, trains, and provides ongoing support to volunteers who assist seniors who live in their own homes. Volunteers assist the senior in:

  • Simple household tasks
  • Social companionship with friendly visits
  • Transportation for shopping, errands, and appointments
Volunteers are requested to spend 2-3 hours per week with the senior and to plan on volunteering for at least 6 months. After an initial screening process and training, the volunteer is matched with a senior that they feel comfortable with helping to ensure a good experience for each person. Volunteers come from throughout Lane County including:
  • Cottage Grove
  • Creswell
  • Eugene
  • Florence
  • Junction City
  • Oakridge
  • Pleasant Hill
  • Springfield
  • Veneta
