TLC for Seniors has been offering “in-person” visits to clients for the last 2 months. We are so thankful to have safe, personal contact (following established Safe Start and CDC Guidelines) with most of our TLC friends. During August and September 2020, we have met with 5 new seniors/families and brought on 4 TLC clients. Two new TLC volunteers have begun serving. During August and September friendship visits have doubled over “no contact” March-July levels. The length of visits are increasing from 1hr per visit to about 1.5 hours/visit as volunteers are able to provide relief from social isolation and caregiver support.
Since August 2017, Tender Loving Care, an Affiliate of Chelan Valley Hope, has provided services to help seniors live comfortably in their own homes: companionship, connection to other community services, support for caregivers and transportation for medical appointments and shopping. This is a volunteer organization that aligns your loved one with a friendly presence, all carried out under the Safe Start parameters of our Governor and CDC guidelines during this COVID-19 time. TLC is actively seeking seniors who would like the friendship and support of a TLC volunteer. Please call Claudia Swenson (360-561-6090) or Kathy Miller (509-470-2843) for more information.
