Our mission is to assist residents in maintaining their independence and quality
of life at home. We have about 180 Volunteers and 360 Members now. We're
delivering basic services (see below) and hope to add more as needed.
But There Are Some Things We Cannot Do!
So we cannot diagnose or treat illnesses or handle medications.
We're Not Medically Trained
Our volunteers are happy to help out, but they do not want full-time jobs
as landscapers, house cleaners, cooks, or whatever.You'll need to hire
somebody to do this (we can help you find a Reliable Contractor).
We Don't Do Ongoing Tasks You Can Hire Folks To Do
For major repairs you need to hire a licensed plumber, electrician, etc.
We're Not Licensed Contractors

IMPACT Of So. AZ - Medical Alert Devices, Senior Center, Etc.

In a real emergency dial 911 and let the trained professionals handle it!
Respond To Emergencies
We'll start with friendly phone calls and occasional home visits to stay in
touch and socialize. We hope to expand to additional social activities
(tea, cards, games, movies) as members request them.
We can drive members to medical appointments, grocery shopping, and
other nearby errands. Our primary service areas are Catalina, Oro Valley,
as far south as Northwest Hospital, and occasionally further.
Going My Way (Transportation)
Lock boxes provide safe, secure, and rapid access for 911 personnel in
an emergency in case you cannot come and unlock the door. Everyone
should have one. There is a one time charge of $65 paid to GRFD.

Other Services Later? -- We Want Your Feedback
We hope to get good feedback from the community about what other services
are needed here. With enough funding and available volunteers we'll try to
provide them. Your input is welcome. Please feel free to Contact Us with your
comments and suggestions!
There are already many programs and services available from other groups
and organizations. We'll do our best to help you find what you need.
Working with our partners at the Community Church (825-5394), we'll be
helping our members access their short term loaner program. If you cannot
make it to the church offices, we'll take you there to get the equipment.
Medical Equipment Loan Program
We're not plumbers, electricians, or landscapers! However, our volunteers
can help with many simple things like leaky faucets or replacing light bulbs.
