Current Needs in Causeway
Shopping with or for people needing groceries. If you are willing to volunteer for grocery shopping, please call. Many of our stores offer safe or time-saving options like online ordering or curbside pick-up.
Running errands is something everyone needs to do, regardless of our age. We have individuals needing to get to medical appointments, shopping, hair appointments and basic errands.
Snow Saints As winter brings us sleet and snow, many of our residents are not able to clear the hard surfaces around their home due to health or safety reasons. Snow Saints clear and/or treat sidewalks and driveways within 24 hours of a winter event.
Thank you for your continued help!

Peer Caregiver Support Program
This program is designed to connect “Volun-Peer Mentors” with caregivers of individuals diagnosed with Alzheimer’s or other related dementia for caring support, socialization and knowledge of resources.
Volun-Peer Mentors have “Been there. Done that.” as former caregivers. They can provide encouragement, a listening ear, and may share a similar caregiving experience but recognize that everyone is different. Support can be provided by phone, in person or electronic communication.
