Respite for Elders Living In Everyday Families (R.E.L.I.E.F)
Aging True’s RELIEF program is open to volunteers ages 18 and older who can provide respite to caregivers by spending time with seniors. RELIEF volunteers visit seniors for a short period and provide opportunities for exercise, social interaction, and motivation. They are also encouraged to foster contact with the senior’s family members through calls, letters, or emails which they help write.
RELIEF is a government-funded volunteer opportunity. Volunteers receive a small stipend for their volunteer hours, along with mileage reimbursement, to offset the cost of serving as a companion to their assigned senior client.
All RELIEF volunteers must undergo a background check and an interview with the volunteer manager. If you are interested in participating in the RELIEF program, email Francine Castillo ([email protected]) with your name and phone number for more information.
