Stipend Volunteer Opportunities

How does a stipend volunteer program work?
Aging True operates a government-funded volunteer opportunity: the RELIEF program. Volunteers receive a small stipend for their volunteer hours, along with mileage reimbursement, to offset the cost of serving as a companion to their assigned senior client.

For more information on these parameters or how to volunteer, please contact program manager Francine Castillo at fcastillo@agingtrue.org or call 904-807-1239.

 

RELIEF Program (Respite for Elders Living in Everday Families)

Trained volunteers provide family caregivers with a much-needed break from their care giving responsibilities for short periods of time. Volunteers receive a stipend as well as transportation and meal reimbursement. Duties of a RELIEF volunteer may include:

  • Encouraging exercise and taking walks with clients
  • Providing companionship by talking, listening and cheering up
  • Fostering client contact with family and friends
  • Writing letters, reading or filling out forms
