Caregiving & Aging Volunteer Opportunities

Respite Volunteer

Respite volunteers provide breaks for someone who is caring for a child or adult with a disability, chronic illness, or frailty in Washington County.

Provide non-medical companionship, supervision, and a friendly new face for a person with special needs so that the caregiver has some time away.

As a respite volunteer, you can set your own schedule and volunteer with a family member or friend.

Some activities that volunteer's enjoy while providing respite include:

  • Conversing about the past and present
  • Reading books or the daily newspaper
  • Solving crossword puzzles
  • Watching movies
  • Playing board games or cards

As a FamilyMeans Respite Volunteer, you can learn new skills, gain practical experience, meet new people, and have fun while making a difference in someone’s life and providing help for caregivers.
