Department Hours: 8 am - 5 pm M - F, excluding County holidays
Companionship Volunteers will provide visitation and companionship to wards of Washoe County. These Volunteers need to be genuinely interested in working with elderly and/or disabled individuals. Patience and a positive attitude are required. Experience interacting with individuals who have dementia and other types of cognitive deficits would be beneficial. Companionship Volunteers will be trained for their duties by the Public Guardian staff.
The date and time of the next Companion Volunteer Training is still to be determined.
