Family Caregivers are Invited to Sign Up for the Virtual Social Visitor Program
The Virtual Social Visitor Program is provided by the Department of Family Services' Volunteer Solutions Program. Our vetted volunteers provide support through regular phone calls made to family caregivers, many of whom are or have been caregivers themselves. A few benefits from this program include:
Alleviation of loneliness/isolation.
Opportunity to chat with a volunteer about lighthearted topics as well as share journeys/stories.
Development of a supportive relationship with a volunteer.
Provision of an informal listening ear/sounding board.
Sign up today by sending an email or calling 703-324-5406, TTY 711. We’ll match you with a volunteer.
