Can you spare a few minutes or hours each week to brighten the day of an elderly person or a shut-in by visiting them or giving them a call? Are you a good listener? If you answered yes, then the Friendly Visitor Program is looking for YOU!
The Friendly Visitor Program is an outreach program for the elderly, and people who are shut-in and unable to get out into the community for social interaction. It is sponsored by the Woodbridge Human Services Department. The goal of the program is to provide relief from the isolation and loneliness of being homebound through regular visits. Training is provided through the Interfaith Caregivers and only takes a few hours.
VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED! Please consider giving some time to this worthy program. Becoming a special friend to an elderly person is a rewarding experience. To volunteer, please call Judi Young, Senior Services Social Worker (203)389-3429.
