AzGEC is collaborating with United Way to create six volunteer information sheets on topics such as: falls, elder abuse, nutrition and communication.These sheets will be used for community volunteers who visit older adults in their homes. We encourage community organizations to incorporate these sheets into their volunteer training curriculum.
Volunteer and Home Visitor Information Sheets provide community volunteers basic background information, helpful tips and community resources on various issues and health concerns for the elderly population. We encourage community volunteer agencies to use the below topics as part of their training curriculum:
- Fall Risk and Home Safety
- Communicating with Older Adults
- Medication Management
- Elder Abuse and Exploitation
- Interpreting Changes Over Time
English and Spanish translations of all information sheets are available free of charge at:
