"I guess if you haven't ever been the caretaker for someone with dementia, you don't realize it's a constant togetherness. His involvement in the (Volunteers of America) program has given me some freedom from the stress. It's been a big relief - not only to me but to my family."Sharon, wife and caretaker for her husband who has dementia
"Go wherever we are needed and do whatever comes to hand."
This was the pledge made by Ballington and Maud Booth when they founded Volunteers of America in 1896. Now, 122 years later, these words still define us as we continue our legacy of responding to the needs of those who are vulnerable.
For older adults and others coping with illness or injury, we offer a continuum of services. We provide long-term nursing care, assisted living, memory support, respite programs, rehabilitative therapy and more.
