Volunteer Opportunity - Active Retirees Needed

Volunteer Opportunity Details:

Last updated on April 10, 2014

Respite Companion: a volunteer who gives the gift of time to someone who is a full-time caregiver for a chronically ill/disabled home-bound loved-one.

Caregivers need relief/respite form time to time. That is where our Respite Companions come in to play.

Our volunteers are trained to do wonderful in-home, non-medical companionship services. This includes doing a number of activities to encourage mental stimulation and conversation skills, reminiscing, and many other rewarding opportunities. Our program allows families to afford in-home respite care that would otherwise be too expensive.

All respite clients are pre-screened for eligibility for non-medical respite.
