The Power of your hour…is a great way to give back to your community and help your elderly neighbors!
Driver Volunteers drive frail elderly to and from appointments as needed. Our drivers are good listeners, too and help identify client’s needs or complaints as they are expressed, reporting to staff about the experience as needed. PeopleCare does reimburse our volunteers for the cost of fuel.
Friendly Visitors meet with the frail elderly clients in their home or retirement facility as needed so they may talk and reminisce. Being a good listener and help identify client’s needs or complaints as they are expressed, reporting to staff about the experience as needed.
…and what do I get out of this?
You will be making a significant contribution to your community and society in general. Not only will you feel a sense of discovery and adventure, but you will feel a strong sense satisfaction and value to the people you serve. Many times sharing your life’s lessons with others and hearing the wealth of experience filling the minds of those you help gives one a strong sense of well-being. You will also be part of a group of like people with a clear purpose of helping the homebound elderly.
