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 homebound 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.

In Memorial
Carol Bowers

Carol Bowers, NWC’s volunteer manager since 2011, passed away on Friday, October 27. She had been on medical leave since early August. She was a driving force and one of the public faces of Neighbors Who Care. She recruited and trained hundreds of neighborhood volunteers, planned our annual community fair and volunteer recognition celebrations, edited our quarterly newsletter, and represented NWC at countless meetings and events. She was in large part responsible for the success of Neighbors Who Care and our growth as an organization.

More importantly, Carol was one of the nicest and most caring people you will ever meet. She was consistently cheerful and optimistic, even in the midst of chaos. You would never come away from a meeting with her without feeling better about the situation and about yourself.

She will be missed.
