Caring with your heart and fostering independence helps improve lives by offering hope and comfort.
Through the Northland Shepherd's Center Friendly Visitor and Respite Care programs you will help to provide social interaction and emotional companionship to an older adult. Our positions are located in southern Platte and Clay counties and offer flexibility to fit your needs. Respite care is non-medical supervision and companionship to a dependent adult (60+) who cannot be left home alone. This volunteer opportunity keeps our clients connected with the community and the outside world through conversation, reading, and other forms of interaction. This is the perfect opportunity for you if you have a positive, friendly attitude, can be sensitive to the needs of elderly people, and enjoy sharing company with others.
