Helping Homebound Adults
If you are interested in directly helping a homebound senior, you may provide a variety of simple services. After you attend a one-time orientation, we will work to find a “neighbor” who you can help.
Note: Services are offered ONLY in:
- Fountain Hills
- Paradise Valley
- Scottsdale (south of Frank Lloyd Wright)
We’re flexible! Choose the following:
- Service you would like to provide
- Area of town in which to serve
- Hours and days you would like to help
Here are the services you may choose to provide:
- Grocery shopping “For” or “With” someone to grocery store, 1x per week
- Transportation Escort someone to medical appointment, 1x per week
- Friendly visiting 1 visit per week for about 1 hour
- Friendly phoning 2 or 3 phone calls per week, 10 minute conversations
- Paperwork Assistance Sort mail, bill paying, insurance forms, etc. 1x per week/month
- Handyman Services Minor home repairs, completed in 1 or 2 visits
- Respite Assistance Break for caregiver; companion to homebound person; 1x week, no hands-on care
- Computer Assistance Teach homebound seniors basic email, internet skills; 1x week, 1 – 2 hours, 12 weeks
Who can volunteer to provide these services?
Anyone who is interested in directly helping a homebound adult may volunteer. If you are under 18, you may volunteer but you must be under the supervision of an adult with a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance. Many of our volunteers work full-time jobs – so most services are flexible enough to be done in the evening or on weekends, around a volunteer’s schedule.
Can I start volunteering today?
You start by attending a volunteer orientation. All of our volunteers are insured and have level 1 Background clearances. We want you to be comfortable when you start helping a “neighbor.” To register for an orientation just tell us your name and which orientation you wish to attend.
