Elderly-exercise-copy.jpgThe Council on Aging offers programs and services for anyone 60 or older, and for those who care for them. Whether its a young, active 62 year old or someone struggling with the physical, financial or emotional challenges of aging, COA is  helping our community age successfully. As a volunteer, you can make a difference in the life of an older adult living in our community and improve your own aging process by participating in our work.

shower-bar-installation-copy.jpgVolunteer to meet people, learn new skills and help your neighbors. Provide companionship and assistance to an older adult and make a new friend. Volunteers transport older adults who can no longer drive and cannot use public transportation to medical and other necessary appointments. Volunteers also help deliver prepackaged food, donated by Manna Food Bank, boxed by the Salvation Army, delivered once a month to the homebound elderly. We often get requests for various odd and interesting volunteer opportunities - babysit for a pet while someone is in the hospital, pick up food from local farmers and distribute to low income elderly, spend time with someone so a family member can get a break. And, we appreciate volunteer help with administrative needs here in the office as well.

If you're interested in volunteering please click here to send your contact information to Zoe Trout or call (828) 277-8288. You will be contacted within 24 hours of your inquiry. All volunteers must pass a criminal background check. Volunteers who transport service recipients require a Motor Vehicle Records check.
