The comfort of home and the dignity of independence…At Neighbors Who Care, community volunteers support the elderly with their desire to live fulfilling lives at home for as long as feasibly possible.
Our dedicated volunteers assist the home-bound, disabled, and/or frail elderly in Sun Lakes and South Chandler and treat them with the care and respect they deserve. 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 hospitalization recovery. Many are full-time caregivers for a loved one.
Neighbors Who Care 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, shopping/errands, grocery van transport, friendly 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.
Neighbors Who Care continues to closely monitor Coronavirus developments and has implemented measures set by the CDC and the Maricopa County Department of Public Health to ensure the safety of our volunteers, clients and staff. Our commitment to the health, safety and well-being of every member of our community is our top priority. Fully aware that Neighbors Who Care is a lifeline for vulnerable seniors in Sun Lakes and south Chandler, essential volunteer services are available for our neighbors in need during this time of uncertainty.
We ask everyone in our community to wear a mask at all times in public, wash your hands frequently and practice rigorous social distancing whenever possible to minimize viral spread.
HOW TO HELP:
COVID-19’s biggest impact on Neighbors Who Care has been on our volunteer roster. Concerned for their own health, 50% of our regular volunteers are unable to serve at this critical time. If you know someone willing to give a senior neighbor a ride, pick up groceries or deliver dinner, we need their help!
