Community Caregivers volunteers can choose the type of service that interests them the most. Those who want to provide direct assistance to clients can choose one or more of the following activities:

  • Visitation
  • Transportation
  • Respite for caregivers
  • Shopping from a list
  • Escorting a client to shop
  • Prescription pickup
  • Telephone assurance
  • Assistance with paperwork
  • Light chores
  • Meal preparation/delivery

In addition to client service, volunteers can serve administrative functions such as:

  • Office assistant, one morning or afternoon per week
  • Volunteer coordinator, matching volunteers with clients to fill service requests
  • Committee member (see Committee descriptions)
  • Assistant for fundraising events such as our Gala or Golf outing

“Volunteering at Community Caregivers has given my retired life greater purpose. It is a chance for me to give back to the community where my children grew up.”

“I have most enjoyed the interaction with my transportation clients as I visit with them one-on-one on the way to their destinations.”

“I also enjoyed and learned from my experience as a Navigator volunteer, which involved helping a patient transition from the hospital to a home environment. The purpose was to help the patient stay out of the hospital.”

“One of my greatest pleasures has been working on a Caregivers committee and with the staff. The experience has been positive in every way.”

– Carolyn Wilson, Volunteer

“Although you generally do not know why a client needs transportation and what a particular client is coping with at the time, it always amazes me how gracious and grateful each client is for a simple ride. It is a privilege to be part of your neighbor’s life in their time of need.”

– Judith Lenihan, Volunteer
