This service provides non-medical support in the home from reliable, trained volunteers so caregivers can take care of other responsibilities, or have time to relax or pursue other interests. This service helps caregivers take a needed break to revitalize, so they can continue caring for their loved one in the home.
Volunteer duties primarily depend on the level of activity of the Client. Some volunteers provide safety and security for clients who are homebound; others provide companionship, emotional support, and a caring presence; and others will do an activity for those clients who like to stay busy.
