Friendly Visitor and Walking Services Now Available

Visitor Service Now Available for Members – At the suggestion of several members, we are introducing our Friendly Visitor Service. This service provides a volunteer to make a social visit to a member’s home. The visits last 1.5 to 2 hours and the frequency is once a week. This could be a regularly scheduled, recurring service – similar to our daily check-in call – or an occasional, as requested, service. This time is for conversation, reading, playing cards or games, listening to music, or whatever socializing activity the member is interested in. No household or other tasks may be performed by the volunteer during this time.

Walking Service Now Available for Members – We are introducing our Walking Buddy Service for members interested in getting outside for a walk but don’t want to do it alone. This service provides a volunteer to come to your home once a week who will walk with you for up to 1 ½ hours. This service can be scheduled on a recurring, weekly basis, or occasionally, as requested.  Please note:  Volunteer services are provided to the extent that volunteers are available.

If you are interested in volunteering to provide one or more of these services, please contact us at volunteer@arlnvil.org
