LifeDirect Volunteers Needed
(Stevens Point, WI) – Ministry Living Well, in partnership with Saint Michael's Hospital, is seeking volunteers to assist with the LifeDirect program.
LifeDirect provides a 24-hour personal emergency response service to people who want to continue living independently, who may be elderly, medically at risk, or disabled. The service provides a small device that is worn by the individual; when the button is pushed, an alert activates assistance by trained professionals any time of day or night.
The program relies on specially-trained volunteers to travel to subscribers' homes to install the devices, teach the subscribers how to use the system, and check on them if and when concerns arise. In addition, volunteers assist as the needs arise. Schedules are flexible and incurred mileage is reimbursed.
