Volunteer Coordinators

CAREGIVERS has more than 300 volunteers on record. Our staff needs your help to stay in touch each month. Let us know if you'd be willing to serve as a Volunteer Coordinator. CAREGIVERS will provide a call list of 10-15 other volunteers for you to check on over the course of a month. In addition to making sure volunteers are aware of upcoming events and workshops, our coordinators also help keep our staff informed of changes with our seniors. Helping us track activity among our volunteers ensures that our staff are able to dedicate attention where it's most needed.

Help CAREGIVERS Spread the Word!

Phone Friends

In Summer 2012, CAREGIVERS beta-tested a new program called Phone Friends. Phone Friends are dedicated to calling lonely seniors. Many of the Phone Friends who volunteer to make calls are isolated seniors themselves! This peer-to-peer calling is very effective as seniors often have lots in common to talk about on the phone. If you like to talk on the phone, consider becoming a Phone Friend too. It's amazing what a friendly, compassionate call can do to brighten a frail, lonely senior's day. You may be the only person they hear from!
