Transitions Volunteers

Transitions needs volunteersTransitions is a free non-clinical support program for those with a prognosis of a year or so. Dealing with advancing illness is difficult, but the Transitions team can help ease worry, stress and fear. The professional staff assesses and case-manages each client, but it is the volunteer who is central to the client’s well-being and state of mind.

 

Volunteer opportunities include:

  • Companionship
  • Transportation
  • Help with errands
  • Light food preparation
  • Respite for the primary caregiver
  • Bi-weekly check-in phone calls

 

Here’s some feedback from those we have served about their volunteers:

“I can’t say enough about my husband’s volunteer. He is such a good companion”.

“She may be my volunteer, but she’s more like a sister to me”.

“Our volunteer came over last Sunday and brought hamburgers and French fries for all of us. He is so nice, we think of him like a son”.

“I enjoy my volunteer and the games we play. She is one smart cookie”.

“She sat down beside me and we just talked. I wanted to hold her hand, so we held hands and talked some more.”
