The friendly visitors program seeks to match visitors with those who would like a friendly visit to chat over a cup of coffee or tea or ease the tedium of a recuperation from surgery or illness. Visiting may be desired due to a short term confinement or to provide a longer, more consistent relationship. The program will work to match the needs of each individual and volunteer.
No prior caregiving experience is needed-just a desire to bring a smile to a fellow parishioner or community member. Priority is given to RPC members for visitations but we also extend outreach to facilities such as Port Chester Nursing Home. If you would like a visit or would like to be a visitor, please contact Marilyn Clague, (967-5260) or Patti Adimari, (967-6351) for more info or to volunteer as a participant. We meet as a group bi or tri-monthly for peer support so we will not overburden visitors with meetings. This is a wonderful way to build the body of Christ in our congregation and beyond!
