“Neighbors Who Care and Robson Reserve are partnering to bring these useful and timely topics this summer. Get out of the heat, meet some neighbors, and learn useful information, all in Robson Reserve’s beautiful, comfortable space, for free. We are working with a few community partners to share useful, vital information,” Sheryl Keeme said. “When it’s hot here, it’s a great time to stay indoors and learn.”
About the organization: Neighbors Who Care is a nonprofit organization founded in 1994. Its mission is to assist the homebound, disabled, and/or frail elderly in the communities of Sun Lakes and South Chandler, which have the third highest population of elderly adults statewide but lack sufficient wraparound human services programs to address the population’s needs, according to the 2010 U.S. Census. Its operational goal is to recruit, train, and manage community volunteers to provide quality non-medical assistive services to enrolled clients via a “neighbor helping neighbor” approach, which has helped our clients, on average, remain in their homes for an additional four years.
