Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers

Goal: $20,000.00

Specific Need

Celebrating 25 years of neighbors helping neighbors in Loudoun County! 

 

Now, more than ever, the elderly and adults with disabilities and chronic illnesses in our community need the support that LVC's volunteers provide. Our office continues to be staffed each work day, and our volunteers are continuing to help with medical transportation (for dialysis, cancer treatments, and urgent care), prescription pickup and drop off, money management, home food delivery, chore corps requests, and friendly calls on a regular basis. We are also helping with direct financial support requests through our Care Receiver Fund.

 

LVC has had to cancel all its upcoming fundraisers, so we are hoping the community will help us fill this budget shortfall. Our goal is to raise $15,000 to keep our staff working, help with direct financial support to care receivers, give out masks and gloves to volunteers, and keep our programs going

- won't you help?

Mission

Loudoun Volunteer Caregivers is a corps of volunteers who strive to help frail elderly, disabled and chronically ill adults to maintain independent living, with dignity and with quality of life.

Profile

Helping elderly, disabled and chronically ill adults to age in place, with dignity and quality of life:  Assisted Transportation provides transportation to non-emergency medical appointments, dental appointments, physical therapy, dialysis treatments, cancer treatments, and other non-critical medical/dental appointments as well as non-medical errands and appointments.

 

Supportive Services provide grocery shopping, food bank pick-up/delivery, prescription pick up/delivery, banking. Clients either accompany volunteers or volunteers provide the service on behalf of homebound clients.

 

Our Chore Corps (collaborating with the Area Agency on Aging) provides free minor home repairs.

 

Our Student Caregiver program engage youths ages 12-18 in either a team setting or at quality of life events. These teams provide services that include shopping, visiting, reading, yard work, meal preparation, light housekeeping, playing games and in general support quality of life activities. Monthly clubs bring youths together with the elderly.

 

Personal Money Management provides bill paying assistance and representative payees for those incapable of managing their own SSI or SSDI.

 

100% of our clients who are matched with representative payee volunteers are clients of Loudoun County's Dept of Mental Health, Mental Retardation and Substance Abuse or the Community Service Board. All services are provided for free, regardless of the care receivers' income.

 

Our goals are to help more elderly and disabled adults remain living independently, with the assistance they need that will enable them to do so.
