Help a Homebound Adult “Neighbor”

Volunteer one-on-one.

Caring for your neighbor

We match volunteers with neighbors within close proximity of each other. Once vetted and matched you can volunteer by:

Grocery shopping

Shopping “for” or “with” someone once per week.

Paperwork assistance

Sort mail, bill paying, insurance forms, etc. once per week/month.

Minor handyperson services

Minor home repairs, completed in one or two visits.

Rides to doctor’s appointments

Escort someone to medical appointment, once per week.

Friendly visiting and friendly phoning

One visit per week for about 1 hour. Or two to three phone calls per week, ten minute conversations.

Technology assistance

Assist homebound seniors with use of technology. Smart phones, computers etc.

It’s so easy to find someone you can help!

Our interactive Services Map shows our waiting list of homebound adults who need caring volunteers – just like you. Each symbol represents an actual person who is currently waiting to get groceries, friendly visiting, or assistance with paperwork, or computer training.

Normally our highest demand for volunteer services is to provide grocery shopping assistance and transportation to medical appointments. (Note: transportation to medical appointments is not represented on the interactive map)

Once you become a registered volunteer with us, you will be matched with a neighbor in need.

Requirements

To help a homebound neighbor, a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance is required. The cost of printing and obtaining a card is $73. The process is completed through DPS and Gemalto/Thales. After six months of active volunteering, Duet will refund you the cost of the card at your request. If you already have a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance, simply provide a copy for our records. If you are under 18, you may volunteer under the supervision of an adult with a Level 1 Fingerprint Clearance.
