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.
