For twenty six years, Friends for Life has been recruiting, training and organizing volunteers to help the elderly age in place with our Independent Living | Aging in Place program. Our goal is to provide services that will allow seniors to stay in their own home for as long as possible.
Often this might be as simple as someone they can call on to change a light bulb, or escort them to a doctor’s appointment or grocery store. Other times this might include home repairs, lawn mowing or building a wheelchair ramp. Our Independent Living | Aging in Place program allows for independence and peace of mind. For many, it might mean a friendly voice on the phone calling to check up on them and listen to them talk. Many sweet friendships have evolved through our telephone reassurance center.
Independent Living | Aging in Place Volunteers help by doing the things that our clients are no longer able to do for themselves like:
- Mow Yards
- Minor Household Repairs
- Change Light bulbs
- Run Errands
- Grocery Shop
- Accompany a Senior to the Doctor
- Provide Telephone Reassurance
- Provide Information, Referrals and Assistance to Seniors who Need Other Help
Many of our volunteers have been with us for years. They are individuals of all ages, school, church and civic groups who plan yearly projects to help seniors do things they cannot do for themselves, or they are on call to help as needed.
We love our volunteers and know we could not provide the services we provide without them. Currently we are seeking additional Independent Living | Aging in Place volunteers in many areas of Texas
If you would like to volunteer, we have a place for you. God Bless You!
