Review for FAITH IN ACTION CAREGIVERS INC, Wheeling, WV, USA
Faith in Action Caregivers of Wheeling and the Ohio Valley is an organization whose mission is to make it possible for elderly and disabled individuals maintain their independence by providing many of the needed services that enable individuals to remain in their own homes. These services, such as transportation to medical and other appointments, home and gardening chores, grocery shopping, compassionate visitations and respite care, are provided by a group of community volunteers who are trained and supervised by an office staff of caring professionals. This small and dedicated staff handles calls for assistance, matches the invididual requiring assistance with a compatible volunteer, and follows up to assure that the service has been properly provided. Volunteers are trained by the Executive Director and are prepared to handle situations that may arise in the course of providing service. I have been trained as a volunteer and have enjoyed the relationships that I have had with service recipients. In my role as President of the Board, it has been my privilege to work with the dedicated staff of Faith in Action and with the other caring professionals that make up the Board of Directors.
