There are many persons in our community living alone or with family members who work during the day. They may be recovering from an illness or in need of someone to help them overcome loneliness during the day. As a Touch-a-Life volunteer, you will bring support and encouragement at a time when someone really needs you.
While Touch-a-Life is there to help with everyday tasks, the greatest contribution is peace of mind for the person assisted. It is this sense of security that encourages well-being and a sense of independence.
As a Touch-a-Life volunteer, you may be called to assist with activities you select including:
- Companionship/Friendly Visitor
- Respite for Caregivers
- Letter Writing/Reading
- Telephone Visiting
- Transportation Services
- Meal Preparation
- Household Chores
- Outdoor Chores
- Minor Repairs
- Assistance with Hobbies
