Each “Neighbor” can receive this sort of help…
Friendly Visits and Phone Chats
For the homebound, these visits can be invaluable. We stop by for an hour or two each week or place friendly phone calls.
If the “Neighbor” is mobile, our visits can include a lunch outing or other activities.
Smiles abound when a certified pet visits a Neighbor.
We drive Neighbors to medical appointments, accompany them inside, and return them safely home after the appointment.
We drive Neighbors to and from events that can include concerts, plays, movies, shopping, lunch, “silver sneakers”, chair yoga, or a variety of other fun excursions.
We have a fleet of 7 vans, 4 that are wheelchair accessible. Each is in tip-top shape and driven by a trained, courteous volunteer.
Neighbors can enjoy a delicious, nutritious meal delivered right to their door by a friendly representative of Foothills Caring Corps. Meals are delivered on Weekdays and, if desired, on Fridays we drop off a few extra for the weekend.
(NOTE: There is a minor charge for these meals. In certain instances, meals may be subsidized by additional funding.)
We take Neighbors to the grocery store or any other conveniently located establishment to help with shopping. For Neighbors who can’t get out, we’ll take their list and shop for them. We assist with carrying bags into the home and help with unloading and storage.
When needed, we visit the homes of Neighbors for a few hours so that their family caregivers can take breaks.
Minor Home Repair
Changing light bulbs or smoke detector batteries needn’t be frustrating; when asked, we handle various odd jobs for our Neighbors. If big projects need attention, we’ll see what we can do to help.
Some of our Neighbors have trouble with arthritis and/or vision and need help opening mail, reading correspondence, and managing bills. We enjoy assisting. We also help make emails and the internet less frustrating and more fun for our Neighbors.
We provide essential support to Neighbors who have recently been discharged from a hospital or rehabilitation center.
Medical Equipment Loans
In our Office we have a variety of useful items that can be priceless for a Neighbor who recently suffered a fall or had surgery. Depending on availability, we loan walkers, wheelchairs, commodes, canes, transfer chairs, crutches, knee scooters and other items.
