An easy and fun volunteer opportunity! You can support your community by visiting an isolated older adult in their home. Whether you engage in conversation, play a game, or pursue common interests, you’re time and company are appreciated. Depending on the client, you may be able to take them on outings such as drives, helping with errands, or out for coffee. It’s a wonderful way to brighten someone else’s day! Visits typically are once a week for an hour.
Volunteers are always needed for lonely, isolated older adults. One visit per week can bring a lonely older adult a huge sense of worth and happiness. Those who are isolated, often find their recall of daily details is frosted over. A little social contact can melt that ice and bring warmth to you both.
Visits are weekly for as little as one-hour time commitment for an in-home visit or a couple of hours if you care to take them to an activity such as going for coffee, shopping, attending an art show!
