Looking for a chessed org that sends volunteers to visit home bound senior women who need some company and some cheering up. Please provide any info you have regarding name and number of org and what they offer. Thanks tizkeh lemitzvos!
Bikur Cholim of Boro Park.
She isnt bed ridden its just that her degenerative condition makes it difficult to leave the house and she lives a few floors up…You think BC is for this? She isnt mamish a choleh…
Generally speaking that’s what bikkur cholim does, send volunteers to cheer people up. They don’t have to be sick, just need company for whatever reason (elderly, depressed etc.) However, they do depend on volunteers so they may not cover as much so they’d like to. Just pick up the phone and ask them.
I’m not sure where you live but you may try to contact a local girls high school – they usually have girls going to visit people.
reach out to local jewish councils and bikur cholim, they can prob direct you
WIY-where does this person live? I may have spare time on my hands..
Try this lady. They do the visits for Holocaust survivors, but I am sure that she would know other similar chessed orgs.
