Become part of the family.
When you serve with Age Well Arrowhead, you’ll learn that even the smallest task can make a big difference in someone else’s life. Volunteers often complete tasks like picking up groceries, dusting a ceiling fan, shoveling snow, or other light housekeeping duties.
At the end of the day, there are few things as rewarding as the genuine gratitude shown by the older adults we care for.
Do you enjoy shopping? Want to get a little exercise? Our Groceries-To-Go program offers three unique opportunities including taking grocery orders over the phone on Tuesday mornings, grocery shopping, or delivering groceries on Wednesday mornings to older adults in our community.
Help clients with regular household tasks that may include vacuuming, helping to change bed linens, mopping a floor, meal preparation, laundry or organizing closets. You might also have the opportunity to help an older adult prepare for a move to different living quarters by prepping for an estate or rummage sale.
Handyman, Garden & Yard Care
These tasks are a little more involved and can entail lawn mowing and trimming, snow shoveling, moving furniture, changing light bulbs out of reach or fixing a railing near stairs or deck boards for safe passage.
Assist and support Age Well Arrowhead staff with administrative tasks that include copying handouts, assembling manuals, building & helping to maintain files, agency mailings, client satisfaction surveys, etc.
Senior Wheels – Transportation
Our clients need drivers to help transport them to and from medical appointments and in some cases assistance with maneuvering complicated medical facilities. This service is vital to the overall health of older adults and supports their independence and well-being.
