When Pat joined Caregiver Volunteers of Central Jersey in 1999, she had recently retired as a social worker and counselor; she was hoping to find a volunteer opportunity in the field she loved so much. Pat says she has always felt blessed in so many ways and was always taught to give back when possible. Her heart and faith agreed with that so when she found Caregivers it was a perfect match!
Pat trained with Caregiver Volunteers in December of 1999 and has been a dedicated and very busy volunteer for over 20 years. As a volunteer, Pat believes she has received so much more than just fulfilling her need to help. She has met such wonderful people, shared great stories and made so many friends.
Whether just a ride to the doctor or sitting with an Alzheimer’s care receiver, she now has over 20 years of wonderful memories that she cherishes
