The South Carolina Friendly Visitor Program

MAKE A DIFFERENCE TODAY.

Sixty percent of the residents in long term care have no visitors. Volunteer friendly visitors are special people who make a significant contribution. Through their efforts, they improve the quality of life for many seniors in our state. Volunteer “Friendly Visitors” go to facilities on a regular basis to greet, visit with residents, and help educate residents and families on residents rights. MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN SOMEONE’S LIFE. Become a Volunteer Friendly Visitor.

Please contact: Tasia Stackhouse, Waccamaw Regional Council of Governments at 843-436-6145 or email: tstackhouse@wrcog.org.

Volunteer Drivers Needed!

Did you know most disabled and older adults want to live on their own for as long as possible, and we don’t think they should have to move to assisted living just because they are no longer able to drive. That’s where YOU come in. As a volunteer driver, you help seniors and disabled adults get to where they need to go: medical appointments, grocery stores, banks, human service agencies, social activities and more. As a volunteer with the Assisted Rides Program, you are in the driver’s seat. You pick the rides you want to give. This is one of the most flexible and rewarding volunteer opportunities available. You can make a life changing difference for seniors and disabled adults who want to live independently.

Please contact: Trina Cason, Waccamaw Regional Council of Governments, Assisted Rides Program, Mobility Manager 843-436-2110 or email tcason@wrcog.org.
