  • Fight Alzheimers on the Summer Solstice - June 20!

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    What is The Longest Day? The Longest Day is a team event to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association(r). Held annually on summer solstice, the duration of this sunrise-to-sunset event symbolizes the challenging journey of those living with the disease and their caregivers. Teams are encouraged to create their own experience as they fundraise and participate in an activity they love to honor someone facing the disease. How do I participate? STEP 1 GRAB YOUR FRIENDS Grab your friends, family and co-workers and form a team. You don’t have to live in the same city or state - or even the same country! Don’t be nervous to ask others to get involved - you’ll be surprised how many people have been affected by Alzheimer’s and want to join the fight. STEP 2 PUT YOUR PASSION TO GOOD WORK On The Longest Day, select an activity you love - or honor a caregiver, or someone living with or lost to the disease, by selecting his or her favorite hobby. You’re limited only by your imagination. STEP 3 RAISE MONEY AND MOVE THE CAUSE FORWARD Every team is asked to register and raise a minimum of $1,600 to further the care, support and research efforts of the Alzheimer’s Association. Fundraise leading up to and on The Longest Day. We’ll help with coaching, tools and advice! STEP 4 PLAN YOUR DAY From sunrise to sunset, The Longest Day stretches 16 hours. Divide the day into segments and ask teammates to cover a portion. If you live in the same area, host an all-day event to cheer each other on. If your team members are in different locations, stay in touch with texts, tweets and Facebook posts. STEP 5 CELEBRATE AT SUNSET Gather your team - whether in person or virtually - and celebrate your accomplishments while recognizing the strength of those facing Alzheimer’s.

    So many families just need a few hours to take a break, run errands, go to an appointment for themselves. But the obvious is, they can't leave their loved one home alone.

Some volunteers devote several hours each week while others commit to a few hours each month. All hospice volunteers receive training to ensure that they feel comfortable performing their requested/assigned care activities. Listed below are examples of common hospice duties: Being present with the patient to allow their caregivers to rest and/or run errands. Listening to the patient. They may share stories, concerns, regrets, and/or areas of thankfulness with you. You may have opportunities to engage the patient to share their life story. Engaging in the patients hobbies- perhaps reading to them, listening to music discussing past/current events or simply play board games or watching TV.

    This is a virtual opportunity
    It's Flexible! We'll work with your schedule

    One Community is an all-volunteer nonprofit sustainability think tank. We're seeking a researcher to help us determine the best medical insurance for a team of 100+ full-time construction volunteers. SKILL REQUIREMENTS Must be available for 10+ volunteer hours a week Must have solid research experience and quality writing skills Medical and/or insurance experience is a plus but not required Must not be an agent or anyone seeking to profit from this research WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT One Community is an all-volunteer nonprofit organization. Our construction and residency plans will include a population that will grow to more than 1000 people and we want to offer a comprehensive insurance plan for all resident volunteers. Health insurance for us has been identified as one of the largest contributors to our ongoing overhead , so we are seeking the best approach possible for the hundreds of thousands of dollars we’ll be investing. The solution and rationale we come up with is also something we want to share as a guide for others. This guide/tutorial will be helpful for others replicating our sustainable education hubs, other medium-sized organizations seeking to provide full-coverage insurance as a benefit for their employees/members, and as a possible replicable model for collaborative health insurance implementation for uninsured groups of people and families willing to cooperatively work together and/or pool their resources/buying power to save money. DESIGN INTENT Insurance will be 100% paid for by One Community Insurance must be easy to add and remove people Insurance plan must include covering injuries during on-site construction, work, etc. Research should include creating our own Medical Provider Network as one option Research should also include all other health insurance options including group, company, private, etc. Insurance must take into account an aging population Insurance must cover preventative checkups, dental, accidents, catastrophic health events. Would like options for prescriptions, eye glasses, etc. We want our monthly costs as low as possible, so a high deductible is probably going to be preferable and cheaper Could be combined with a separate company plan covering accidents, etc. WHAT IT SHOULD LOOK LIKE WHEN DONE Complete research for creating our own Medical Provider Network Complete research on the individual and company insurance options available Create health plan proposal and tutorial covering rationale for best option: cost analysis, savings analysis compared to other options, coverage comparisons SUGGESTED ACTION ITEM LIST FOR THIS TASK Research Medical Provider Network - write summary of this option Research the differences between individual, group, and company insurance options and any others we may want to choose between - summarize each one and submit for my review/feedback Create a spreadsheet to organize your research on: The major US insurance providers, contact info, reviews Primary insurance coverages offered and their associated benefits and costs Information needed by insurance companies to provide accurate quotes Create with me the profile of our organization to for 3c Contact your top insurance companies researched and begin a dialogue with them about our plan options.

Provide for my review your initial summary of what you’ve learned and your recommendations and rationale Research answers to any followup questions I may have and then integrate these answers and my feedback into a final report/tutorial ready for publication on the website HOW TO APPLY To apply and learn more about our organization and how we promote our volunteers, please visit our online application page here: https://www.onecommunityglobal.org/collaboration/ Alternatively, you are also welcome to send your resume and work samples directly to our Executive Director who is doing the interviewing and hiring for this position: jae@onecommunityglobal.org

    Are you age 55 and up? Looking for ways to stay involved while remaining safely at home during the COVID-19 outbreak? Then this is the perfect opportunity for you! We are looking for volunteers who want to help homebound seniors and people with disabilities stay connected to their communities. If you love talking on the phone, writing letters, or making and sending cards to lift someone else's spirits then this is the opportunity for you! We provide training, helpful conversation starter questions, and make every effort possible to match volunteers and clients with common interests to help facilitate conversation. Our goal is to help connect our community at a time when people are having to distance themselves from others. Just because we can't physically be around others doesn't mean we are alone, and now, more than ever, our homebound seniors and people with disabilities need to stay connected to their communities. Just a short phone call at least two times per week to check in on someone and ensure that they're okay makes such a difference. To learn more about this opportunity call Shannon Collins, RSVP Director at (423)318-6912 or (423)621-1943.

    Call and check on seniors during a time where, unfortunately, they are isolated. In doing these calls you will be provided a script and a series of questions to ask the seniors.

Calls take place Mondays at 1:00 p.m. and Wednesday and Friday at 10:00 a.m. We ask that volunteers stay on the calls for at least 90 - 120 minutes. You do need a computer with internet access and the microphone capabilities as calls are made right from the computer (no phone is needed). If you've participated in Hangout calls, Zoom, etc. your computer should be compatible. Up for the challenge? Here's what you'll need to do: 1) Visit this link to sign up https://www.mobilize.us/mow/event/265767/ - you will have to select Monday, Wednesday, and/or Friday at the scheduled start time 2) You will receive an email with next steps and a youtube video to help provide direction 3)) You will receive a couple of reminder emails of your scheduled call.
