Website CAREGIVERS - Volunteers Assisting The Elderly

CAREGIVERS programs are carried out by over 300 giving, caring volunteers who are recruited and trained from our local community. We are in great need of additional volunteers to assist the many more frail, elderly residents who call our office for help. If you would like to: Have a rewarding volunteer experience
Use your talents and abilities to help a homebound elderly person
Make a new friend
Be free to set your own hours of service
Work independently, but with plenty of support
Be challenged and greatly appreciated
Feel good about yourself

Volunteers are interviewed and matched with a CAREGIVERS client, based on their interests, work experience, background, personality, etc. Volunteers are asked to set aside 2 to 4 hours per week to assist their elderly “friend.” It is our goal to foster a long-term friendship between the two people, so that the senior will have a dependable source of support into the future. Through our careful matching, many wonderful relationships have developed between volunteers and clients over the years. If you prefer not to make a weekly commitment, but can drive an elder to a medical appointment on an “as needed” basis, your services are greatly needed. There is always a waiting list at CAREGIVERS of seniors who desperately need your help.
