SAGES Connection: A Ministry of Visitation and Compassion
All ages are invited to volunteer to visit and/or provide assistance to those in need. In this ministry you will be matched with a Care Partner, or couple, and agree to be in regular contact with them for a period of four months. We ask for weekly contact by phone, at church or personal visit. And, we ask for a monthly brief report on how your Care Partner is doing. After four months, you will have the option to continue in the ministry or opt out for the next period. This ministry has proven to be helpful for both volunteers and Care Partners.
