No Place Like Home Campaign

See all wishes from Verde Valley Caregivers

Description

Verde Valley Caregivers Coalition is wishing for a lot of people to help reach their goal of $150,000 in the online “No Place Like Home” Campaign. Join a team or create your own team, make a donation and invite your friends and family to do the same at https://secure.qgiv.com/event/vvcccampaign/.
Because of COVID-19 VVCC will not be able to have the popular Gala this year, so the online campaign is needed to continue service to over 2,200 older adults in the Verde Valley.

Ten Reasons to Volunteer with Verde Valley Caregivers

See all wishes from Verde Valley Caregivers

Description

Discussions with current volunteers have revealed ten reasons why folks should volunteer to help their elderly or disabled neighbors as part of the Verde Valley Caregivers.
Reason #1: Make a Difference in Your Community
VVCC is a network of people helping neighbors. As our population ages, every year there is an increasing need for assistance to elderly who want to stay in their own homes. At some point in time, most can no longer drive themselves. Without a convenient transit system, getting to medical appointments and running basic errands, such as grocery shopping, can be impossible.
VVCC fills this gap by providing over 2,200 older adults and adults with disabilities with transportation, shopping assistance, friendly visits, handyperson help and other services to help them stay in their own homes. Volunteer, John Wozniak, shares the importance of this goal to him. “Anything to help people stay in their own homes. It breaks my heart to see people sitting around in care centers.” He says, “neighbors are very gracious and very grateful.” He finds the work “very fulfilling”.

Wishing for Respite Volunteers

See all wishes from Verde Valley Caregivers

Description

Volunteer companions provide company and assistance to neighbors while family caregivers take a much-needed break. The volunteer companions are not expected to provide nursing care or personal hygiene assistance.
A current volunteer, Tony Isolda, learned about VVCC respite care when his wife was very ill. She got so much out of the visits that when she passed away, he decided he would like to give the gift of respite to others. In 2016 he volunteered with VVCC as a respite care giver.
When he goes to meet with a neighbor, he often brings some kind of treat. He said, “They’re lonely and want to talk.” One person he cares for, Donald, is 95. When Tony visits Donald they play games, read and have an enjoyable time. It gives Tony a good feeling about how his visits lift other’s spirits. From experience Tony says, “Those visits are better than a million bucks to a neighbor.”
To volunteer call (928) 204-1238 or email the Verde Valley Caregivers at operations@vvcaregivers.org. Tony is willing to talk to anyone who is interested in volunteering to answer questions about what it is like.

Enrich Your Life -- Volunteer

See all wishes from Verde Valley Caregivers

Description

Verde Valley Caregivers wishes to enrich your life. Here is an example from one of our volunteers:
Hank Culbertson joined VVCC as a volunteer driver in June 2014. After reading an article in the paper about VVCC he decided that transporting “neighbors” was his calling. Hank enjoys getting to know the neighbors and hearing their life stories. He particularly likes the long trips and frequently travels from Verde Valley communities to Flagstaff. He’s taken neighbors as far as Phoenix. The work also gives him the opportunity to do something for somebody else. Hank says, “I want to drive for Caregivers as long as I can.”
VVCC needs more volunteer drivers and volunteers to make friendly visits and respite assistance. Volunteers decide when, where and how often they wish to volunteer. Visit https://vvcaregivers.org/volunteer-opportunities or call (928) 204-1238 to enrich your life and others, too.
