Home Cleaning for Seniors with Meals on Wheels - 6 Volunteers

We will be doing some light house cleaning for Meals On Wheels' home-bound senior clients.  No experience or supplies necessary.  We'll be meeting at the Dogpatch Cafe at 12:30pm and heading over to the client's home close by for the cleaning. The cleaning will go from 1pm to 4pm then we'll head out afterwards and grab a drink somewhere close.

 

Information Regarding Meals on Wheels

Meals On Wheels of San Francisco Nourishes the Whole Person

Many Meals On Wheels of San Francisco (MOWSF) homebound seniors find housework to be difficult, if not impossible, on their own. Almost 70% of our seniors live alone and a majority of them suffer one or more physical limitations. This important one-time group volunteer opportunity addresses this need.   

MOWSF Clean Team Program benefits for Homebound Seniors for Homebound Seniors:

Home safety inspection: referrals for needed safety items and/or community services to MOWSF social workers

Personal interaction with our volunteers to alleviate some isolation and overcome insecurity about their home condition

A cleaner and safer living space for homebound seniors

An introduction to companionship programs, such as the Friendly Visitor and Grocery Shopper programs

A clean home, and the opportunity to have it cleaned quarterly

      Hey Sue! A bunch of people dropped off last minute this morning for our cleaning today. Any chance you're available at 12:30? We're meeting at Philz on Van Ness.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
