Fall Needs in Causeway

Shopping needs are being received for people needing groceries. If you are willing to shop for a person needing groceries, please call.  Many of our stores offer safe options like online ordering or arranging pick-up by a volunteer.  Thank you!

If you are willing to do errands with someone, we have individuals needing to get to medical appointments, shopping, hair appointments and errands please let us know. Thank you!

Cleaning out Gutters  As fall brings breezy days to strip leaves off of trees, our yards and home’s gutters can quickly fill with debris. We have been getting calls for raking and/or cleaning out gutters, could you help?  Causeway limits this service to single story homes. If you’d like to volunteer, please let our office know.  Thank you!

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.
