Volunteer will be asked to call an isolated senior at least 3 times each week. This gives the senior client the security he/she needs at that time. Conversations need not be long or detailed; rather, a quick check-in is all that is required. Volunteer will be expected to keep detailed records on phone calls and report any unusual circumstances to the appropriate Klein Older Adult Staff member. Paperwork is expected to be turned into the Klein Older Adult staff on the 15th and 30th of each month.
Volunteer must have a clean criminal record check and understand the full ramifications of confidentiality concerns. Volunteers must be organized and keep accurate records.
Volunteer will be expected to attend a Volunteer Orientation and will then receive special training either from the Volunteer Coordinator or a Klein Older Adult Department staff member.
