TeleCare Volunteer
Location: Community Emergency Service
Meals on Wheels
Duties:

Our Meals on Wheels (MOW) clients are more isolated than ever because of the pandemic. This new telephone support program provides a different type of contact for our MOW clients who are homebound, living alone or disabled and no longer have the same interaction with volunteers as they once did. We know that the lack of frequent contact with others can lead to deeper issues such as loneliness, depression, and malnutrition.

We are looking for volunteers who would call a specific group of MOW clients each week to check in and see how they are doing.


Qualifications:

-Good Communicator

-Enjoy interacting with Seniors


Directions:

This is a virtual opportunity. We prefer volunteers to be a resident of Minneapolis and the surrounding suburbs.
