Being independent is a matter of pride for many of our elderly and disabled individuals. Yet, the basic need of obtaining food can sometimes be difficult to attain. Volunteers can assist our elderly recipients by transporting them to the store, reading labels, reaching items or ensuring correct money transactions. In some instances, the volunteers may do the shopping for the individual because they are physically unable to do it themselves. The Caregivers organization is a network of volunteers that assist the elderly and temporarily/permanently disabled individuals of a seven town area. The purpose of the agency is to assist them in maintaining their independence and quality of life in their home environment. By volunteering a couple of hours a week, you become an integral part in maintaining this elderly person's independence.
Parents and children are invited and encouraged to get involved.
