Yes! You, too, can receive this sort of FREE help:
Friendly Visits and Phone Chats
If you’d like, we’ll stop by your residence to check in on you from time to time. Or, we’ll call you up and see how you are doing. We love these visits and chats. And if you are mobile, our visits can include car rides to lunch or most any other nearby activity.
The friendly fact is: you are our Neighbor and we want to be neighborly!
Do you love animals and would like to have pet visits? We can arrange those…all with pets that are certified and want to bring you happiness.
With the utmost care and friendliness, we will drive you to medical appointments, accompany you inside and return you home safely after each appointment.
Our fully trained and ultra-courteous drivers love taking Neighbors to concerts, plays, movies, shopping, lunch, the library, “silver sneakers”, chair yoga, or a variety of other fun excursions. Our fleet of modern vans is kept in tip-top shape and many are wheelchair accessible.
Don’t hesitate to learn more about these trips. We set up a fun calendar of events and will love helping you get to where you want to go.
We want you to get adequate nutrition so if you need them, we’ll deliver meals to you at lunch time. We deliver every weekday and on Friday you can request that we drop off some extra meals for the weekend.
There is a charge for each meal, however, in certain instances meals can be subsidized by other funding for Neighbors who qualify. Bon Appetit!
We will take you to the grocery store or any other conveniently-located store so that you can shop OR if you can’t get out, give us your shopping list and we’ll make the trips for you. Also, we will assist with carrying bags into your home and help you with storage.
We want to give you freedom of mobility!
When needed, we will visit your home for a few hours so that your family caregiver can take a break.
Minor Home Repair
Changing light bulbs or smoke detector batteries don’t need to be frustrating; we’ll handle them for you. Does a screen door need patching or a window caulked? Not a problem. Anything else you need? Even if it’s a big project, we’ll see if we can help get it done or recommend someone who can. You’re not alone with Foothills Caring Corps!
Do you need help opening mail, reading letters, or deciphering bills? When needed, we’ll help with that. Does Email, the internet, or figuring out any other aspect of your computer frustrate you? We have volunteers who can help. We’ll even introduce you to fun computer games like Solitaire, Chess, and more.
If you know you’re heading to a hospital or a rehabilitation center, we may be able to provide essential support to you when you are discharged. Give us a call; we’ll talk about it to see what we can do. Our goal is your peace of mind.
Medical Equipment Loans
In our office we have a room where we store walkers, wheelchairs, commodes, and canes. If you need one, we’ll lend it to you. Give us a call.
