The Neighbor to Neighbor Volunteer Caregivers of Door County program is benefiting area residents with more than medical equipment. Besides the free loaning of much needed medical equipment, Neighbor to Neighbor has nearly 100 volunteers who serve as peer companions and visit the elderly who may live alone. They also provide respite care to homebound individuals so their personal caretakers can have a break. Executive Director Ann Bennett says the organization is always looking for additional volunteers to serve the over 1400 residents they helped last year.
Neighbor to Neighbor also sponsors a lunch group called the Lemonade Club where a support group for cancer patients, survivors, and their family and friends get together. You can find more information about Neighbor to Neighbor and their 10th annual Rib Fest on November 3rd below.
