Description

Visiting Neighbors is a non profit, charitable organization that assists homebound, isolated and frail seniors. VN's mission is to keep seniors independent, in their own homes so that they don't have to go into a nursing home or senior residence. VN's interns help older adults alleviate loneliness and isolation, provide mental stimulation and emotional security, and encourage physical independence. VN champions the power of the intern, bringing generations together to share life experiences and gain respect for each individual's uniqueness. VN promotes a positive acceptance of life after sixty and the value of the elderly in society.

Responsibilities

Interns help seniors with shopping or errands, accompany them to a doctor or to other appointments, provide a steady arm to hold, as well as moral support. Interns will also spend time with a senior enjoying each other's company and learning from one another.

Requirements

Interns should be passionate about older people, responsible, dependable, quick thinking, self motivated, self directed and punctual.
