West Madison Senior Center Volunteer Opportunity

Volunteer to help a westside older adult with their household tasks.
Help a senior in your neighborhood remain safely in their home by assisting with tasks they are unable to perform and unable to afford hired help.

Volunteers are matched with a senior and may help with one or a few of the following tasks: vacuuming, dusting, mopping, organizing items, cleaning kitchen and bathrooms, changing bed linens and outdoor chores. Friendly visiting can also make a huge impact in a senior’s life. Once matched with the senior, the volunteer and the senior can set up the meeting times and the tasks/activities. Locations vary.
