Volunteer Caregiver Respite (VCR)
VCR matches volunteers trained to provide respite assistance to individuals or families who are caring full-time for a homebound adult age 60 or older. Volunteers visit with a frail senior for 2-4 hours per week to provide non-medical support, companionship, and socialization—giving caregivers a much-needed break Activities may include taking a walk, playing cards, working puzzles, watching TV or movies, or just reminiscing. This program is open to qualifying families in Washtenaw County. There is no cost to participate. Donations are welcome to maintain program activities.
