Staff working mostly in the office. Volunteers are continuing to reach out to persons served with phone calls, & virtual contacts. Call or email us for information on services in Shiawassee County & where to register for a Covid vaccine. We can be reached at office@respitevolunteers.org or 989-725-1127. The sooner we get vaccinated, the sooner we can consider, on a case by case basis, resuming in-person volunteering. Please call during this time, to speak with us first. In person visits are limited, we can meet on the deck if you are picking something up. We thank you for your patience during this time. Our staff is happy to talk with persons we are serving, family caregivers, persons seeking services. We can provide contact information for the many home care and senior services in our area. Our case managers are willing to provide phone & virtual calls to help during this time. See our facebook, where we post community service posts often.
