Neighbors Who Care is proud to be serving elders in the greater Waltham area for the past 11 years. We match volunteers with seniors who may find themselves isolated or having a hard time doing life-giving activities, such as getting groceries or going to the hair dresser.
Our volunteers serve as compassionate visitors, accompanying shoppers, or friendly supporters at a doctor’s appointment. As well, our clients and volunteers can be found playing Scrabble, reading and discussing a book together, visiting a festival in the North End, exploring a local museum or shopping for a good bargain. We also host clients and volunteers for ice cream socials, teas, an outing to the symphony and holiday parties. Together, we celebrate the joys in life while creating new friendships.
Sometimes you need to borrow more than a cup of sugar!
Our volunteers can help you or someone you know at no cost. We can assist with:
• Routine non-medical activities such as shopping, errands, and filling out forms or bills.
• Transportation and escort to medical appointments.
• A friendly visit!
We also offer other activities with all our clients and volunteers, such as teas, ice cream socials, and holiday parties.
If you are in need of any of these services, contact us at 781-893-1860 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’d be glad to help!
