If you’ve always wanted to give something back, but weren’t sure where to begin, Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey (CVCJ) is a fun and flexible way to help seniors and veterans stay independent and connected.

CVCJ volunteer Cecile says she loves volunteering for CVCJ: “They enrich my life with the people I meet and their stories.” Cecile transports seniors to and from the doctors, and remarked that the people she’s taken have been extremely grateful, because they aren’t able to drive themselves.

Another volunteer, Maribeth, visits Albena, who has Alzheimer’s, so that Joanne (her caregiver) is able to take a rest. She has said she feels like “part of the family.” and Joanne is thankful for the break. “Maribeth gives me the precious gift of time to regroup so that I am better able to care for mom and keep her comfortable in her home,” Joanne said.

It’s easy to recognize a volunteer. If you ask them what they do, you will see a sparkle in their eye and a smile on their face. The inner joy that is experienced by giving to others shines outward.

If you have five minutes a week or five hours a month, you can be a CVCJ volunteer. There is never a minimum time requirement for volunteering. Donate your time and talent to whatever level you feel comfortable. CVCJ strives to match volunteers to provide services close to where you live.

Don’t wait another moment. Experience the joy of giving. Live longer.
