Concord Caregivers needed

The Friends RSVP Caregiver Program is growing and seeking volunteers who have a couple of hours per week, or even just a few hours per month, to bring comfort and cheer to homebound senior citizens and/or provide transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping and friendly visits. The program helps to keep the elderly living independently and shows a lonely person that someone cares. Volunteers will share conversation, memories and interests with their match and you will not only be improving their lives but yours as well. The program covers Hooksett, Pembroke, Allenstown, Penacook, Bow, Chichester, Epsom and more. Contact the office for more information, Cindy Yanski at cyanski@friendsprogram.org or 228-7615.
