We need volunteers of all ages and your free hour could change a Saratoga Area Senior's Life!
Community Connections is a program of The Adult and Senior Center of Saratoga that trains volunteers in the Saratoga area to provide assistance to seniors in and around Saratoga County. The Mission is to help seniors age in place and maintain an independent lifestyle by providing assistance when needed, including:
Supportive services provided to seniors age 50 and over at no cost. Services may include friendly visits, transportation, respite assistance, shopping and errands, meal preparation, household chores, and telephone calls to "check in" and see how they are doing.
Service are provided to all seniors who need community support or assistance with services, including caregivers who need respite, "an extra set of hands" or assistance with routine tasks in or outside the home. The volunteers give back to their communities with the time and skills that match their lifestyle. The entire community benefits from matching caring people with those in need.
Volunteers are recruited from the local community and then trained and matched with care recipients. They will assist with tasks that appeal to their interest, skill level, and time restraints, and according to their schedule.
