We create matches between volunteers and people over 60 years old who may be frail, isolated, or disabled. By providing free non-medical assistance, we help seniors stay in their homes and remain independent as long as safely possible.
What Volunteers Do
Volunteers provide life-enhancing services such as friendly visits and companionship, social outings, transportation and escort to medical appointments, help with shopping and errands, respite care to give a break to a family caregiver, reading mail and letter-writing.
Volunteers do not provide cleaning, bill-paying services, personal or medical care.
Services are generally provided once a week, for 1-3 hours to meet a senior’s ongoing need, and are scheduled on the times and days that work best for the volunteer.
