Assistance to Remain Independent and Connected to Your Community

Providing assistance to help those in need remain independent and connected to their communities. Bringing greater purpose and meaning to life through giving and receiving.

The Mission of Volunteer Caregivers:

To enable older adults, people with disabilities, and families to maintain their independence, dignity and quality of life by providing services to complement the care they receive or by providing support services to those without other arrangements.

What services do Volunteer Caregivers provide?

Services can include, but aren't limited to, these examples. If the kind of help you're looking for isn't listed, call us - we can usually accommodate any reasonable request for assistance.

Friendly Visits
Share some time with a care receiver - conversation in person or by phone, going for walks, to the movies.

Time Away
In-home visits to care receivers with Alzheimer's or other dementia so their caregivers can have a break.

Rides to shopping, church, banking, hair appointments, the grocery store, post office, or pharmacy.

News on Disc
Audio recordings on CD of the Stevens Point Journal and Portage County Gazette.

Assistance at home
Light housekeeping, meal preparation, yard work, paying bills, snow shoveling.
