Hearts and Hands
Hearts and Hands at Orcas Senior Center recruits, trains, and matches caring volunteers with elderly and disabled adult members of the community for companionship and practical assistance.
Volunteers make friendly visits to support independence and enhanced quality of life by providing opportunities for socialization and assistance with errands and light chores in the home and yard.
The Hearts and Hands Buddy Check-In program provides regular weekly check-in calls to seniors and disabled adults from matched volunteers to support self-isolation, mitigate anxiety, distress and depression, act as a conduit to resources, and to bring early awareness to potential problems.
If you are a senior or disabled adult who would appreciate having a buddy checking in on you, or if you are a community member who would like to be a buddy, please call (360) 919-9318 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
