The Maryland Department of Aging is asking healthy Marylanders to consider volunteering to help older adults across the state. The Caregiver Services Corps was established to provide volunteer caregivers for older adults who need urgent assistance with everyday tasks because they do not have a family member or friend available due to the virus crisis. The service is designed to address pressing needs that are temporary such as: an older adult determines they don’t have access to their prescription medication, or a family member who cares for their elderly loved one can’t check in on them.
Volunteers are needed to perform both in-home tasks for older adults as well as logistical support for the program. Examples include, but are not limited to:
You can help ensure older adults, friends, and neighbors in your community can remain in their homes and give them reassurance they have the support systems in place to do so.
Sign up today by going to the Maryland Responds Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) website. You do not need to work in the healthcare industry in order to volunteer.
