RESPITE VISITING PROGRAM provides family caregivers of older adults
with a weekly break from caregiving. We provide companionship and social
support to both the older adult and the caregiver. Our respite volunteers
are trained and supported by CWC's professional staff.
HOSPITAL VISITING PROGRAM provides companionship and mental stimulation
to socially isolated, elderly residents. Volunteers of all ages are
matched with residents. Pet visiting volunteers bring their friendly,
well-behaved pets to lift the spirits of residents. Each convalescent hospital volunteer is trained by our Director of Volunteers.
OFF FOR CAREGIVERS PROGRAM offers site-based social respite activities
at the Davis Senior Center two Saturdays a month, giving caregivers
a five-hour break each program day. A healthy lunch and stimulating
activities are provided. Our professional staff provides periodic individual
assessments of the participants.
