Friendly Visiting offers a unique opportunity for a group of volunteers who reach out to homebound individuals.
We are a dynamic and diverse group of volunteers or "Friendly Visitors " who visit homebound individuals each week. Every member of our team is willing and eager to share their time with someone who is older, wiser, and has had a lifetime of experience. Our visitors come from all ages and are available to provide companionship, reading assistance (reading mail or a favorite news / magazine article), light grocery shopping, support and more.
Our weekly visits make a world of a difference to homebound individuals that are alone and isolated. Our variety of services helps to bring some positive feelings to many people whom are homebound. The visits allow them to maintain important social contact that, because of their homebound situation is often neglected, and helps to integrate them more effectively into their local communities.
Friendly Visiting takes pride in our individualized approach to serving the homebound elderly. Whether you are inquiring for a loved one, neighbor, client or yourself, we will listen to your needs and recommend a program that suits the need of the individual.
