Volunteers make a world of difference in the lives of homebound older adults and particularly for those who live alone where depression and loneliness are constant companions.  Charitable community organizations are a silver lining for older adults and their family caregivers providing programs and services that help them to age in place with dignity so they can remain living at home for as long as possible.  Many people do not realize that volunteer services are also offered.  Volunteers are our allies in caring. All it takes is the desire to give your time for just a few hours each week or any time you can contribute to visit a homebound older adult to help alleviate loneliness, depression, and social isolation, or provide family caregivers who are so overwhelmed they can barely find time for themselves with much needed respite and peace of mind.  Angels with Wings is a program offered by United HomeCare that links volunteers and clients with the goal to provide older adults with companionship by engaging them in friendly conversation; playing board games; surfing the net (yes, older adults can be techy too) and teaching them to use the computer; listening to music or playing musical instruments; writing letters; reading books; arts and crafts; or engaging in good old fashioned conversation to liven their spirits , remind them that they are important, that they are not forgotten, that they are not too old to participate, and that they are loved and respected.  I invite you to join United HomeCare’s Angels with Wings Older Adult Volunteer Companionship Program for a rewarding experience.  United HomeCare provides volunteer training, orientation, and support.  Be an Angel, join and make a world of difference in an older adult’s life by contributing your time, talent, and caring.  For more information, please call 305.716.0793 or 305.716.0710.
