ROARING FORK VALLEY

 

PREPARING FOR A ROARING FORK LAUNCH

We are looking forward to the activation of A Little Help Roaring Fork Valley.  Fueled by the enthusiasm we have received from seniors and volunteers up and down the Valley, we will start fulfilling help requests in July, 2019.  None too soon for one of our interested members who has been waiting to get her windows washed!  Another prospective member needs a lift to the grocery store and back as the steep hill from the bus stop has not been kind to her.

If you are interested in a varied and flexible volunteer opportunity, A Little Help is for you!  Or if you or a friend or family member is in need of a little help,  please call us at 970-404-1923 or email: mary@alittlehelp.org.

A Little Help provides older members with vital resources and services. Our HelpConnect system also provides easy ways for members to request assistance with or be refered to nearly any non-medical resources.

We need volunteers who can provide:

  • Outreach and event planning
  • Transportation to medical appointments, groceries, social events
  • Medical note-taking
  • Minor home repair, handiwork
  • Yard work, snow shoveling
  • Technology tutoring/trouble-shooting
  • Weekly check-ins
  • Friendly visits/walks
  • Light housework, organization
  • Financial preparation, advocacy
  • Care/resource navigation
  • Caregiver respite

 

We are looking for members who may need a little help with:

  • Work around the house and yard

  • Rides to medical appointments and grocery store runs

  • Changing light bulbs or other home handiwork projects

  • Caregiver respite

  • Getting socially engaged with neighbors

If you know people who may need a little help, we’re happy to contact them.
