The comfort of home and the dignity of independence: at Neighbors Who Care, community volunteers help the elderly live at home for as long as feasible with pride, dignity, and independence.
Neighbors Who Care (NWC) assists the home-bound, disabled, and/or frail elderly in Sun Lakes and south Chandler. We fulfill our mission by providing an array of non-medical assistive services to our clients who are typically home-bound due to chronic or severe illness, physical limitations, or recovering from hospitalization. Many are full-time caregivers for a loved one.
Our volunteers are recruited from the communities we serve and are trained and matched with clients to assist with requested services. Volunteers provide assistance in the areas of transportation, shipping/errands, grocery van, visitation, reassurance calling, minor home repairs, business assistance, dinner delivery, and caregiver relief/respite. Services provided to enrolled clients by Neighbors Who Care volunteers are free of charge.
Many older adults experience concerns about falling and restrict their activities. A MATTER OF BALANCE is an award-winning program designed to manage falls and increase activity levels.
Classes start Friday, January 19 and are held once a week for 8 weeks at the NWC office.
