Serving Seniors and Disabled Neighbors

Since 1994, Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County has helped underserved, homebound seniors, and people with disabilities to age in their homes, with independence and dignity. Our caregiving and wellness services are provided by a dedicated group of volunteers who are recruited, trained, and managed by Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County and in cooperation with our interdenominational coalition. Volunteers  assist with everyday living activities, including rides to essential doctor’s appointments, grocery shopping, minor household chores, and friendly visits. 

During the Covid-19 pandemic our services are needed more than ever.  Our volunteers reach out to their care receivers to ensure they have access to everything they need including: food, medication, and transportation to medical appointments while practicing social distancing and following safety guidelines. Our staff and leadership have been working on new ways to reach out to all we serve.

Caregiving Services and Wellness Programs

Interfaith Caregivers of Greater Mercer County mobilizes hundreds of dedicated volunteers who provide free caregiving and wellness services for the elderly and disable residents of the greater Mercer County area.

Join Our Network of Volunteers

Interfaith Caregivers volunteers provide small but essential services like grocery shopping, giving a ride to a doctor’s appointment or  a friendly in-person or virtual visit. Help with these tasks enables our elderly neighbors to remain in their homes and live independently.

There are numerous volunteer opportunities available in our network. We believe that you can find one that you would enjoy.

"We get along and just enjoy one another’s company,” says Tom. “It feels like we have created a sense of community that is so hard to find these days, where neighbors look after neighbors and everyone is happier for it.

"I’m surprised I have actually helped over 50 people and I can remember all of them. They are in my heart forever. They have given me much more that I’ve given them. To be a volunteer is just one of the greatest thing in the world."
