Partners In Care

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

Partners In Care is a community non-profit organization dedicated to empowering older adults to remain independent in their own homes. They have been building a community of support, neighbors helping neighbors, since 1993.  The organization operates as a unique service-exchange program where members volunteer their time and may receive help when needed based on a time banking system.  
 
A variety of flexible volunteer opportunities are available.  Volunteer drivers are needed to transport members who can no longer drive to medical appointments, grocery stores, and help with errands.  Volunteers are also needed to complete minor handyman repairs; help with non-medical care management and advocacy; assist in the office; and help with various tasks in the upscale resale boutique which generates income to support the organization. Volunteers may work as few or as many hours as they choose and are not locked into a schedule.  Many NSA retirees are already active as Partners In Care volunteers and find their experience very rewarding! 

Call 410-544-4800 to obtain a volunteer application and make a reservation for a volunteer orientation.  Orientations are scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on 7 February 2012, 6 March 2012, 10 April 2012, and 8 May 2012 and are also scheduled for 5:00 p.m. on 9 February, 8 March, 12 April and 10 May.  Orientations will be held at the Partners In Care office which has moved to 90 B Ritchie Highway, Pasadena and now shares a campus with Hospice of the Chesapeake. The Partners In Care Resale Boutique remains at 6 South Ritchie Highway and welcomes shoppers and donations of gently used items.
