Tender Loving Care now offering 
‘in-person’ visits, seeking seniors
CHELAN/MANSON - TLC for Seniors has been offering “in-person” visits to clients for the last two months.They are so thankful to have safe, personal contact (following established Safe Start and CDC Guidelines) with most of their TLC friends.  During August and September, they have met with five new seniors/families and brought on four TLC clients. Two new TLC volunteers have begun serving. During August and September friendship visits have doubled over “no contact” March-July levels. The length of visits are increasing from 1 hour per visit to about 1 1/2 hours/visit as volunteers are able to provide relief from social isolation and caregiver support.  
Since August 2017, Tender Loving Care, an Affiliate of Chelan Valley Hope, has provided services to help seniors live comfortably in their own homes: companionship, connection to other community services, support for caregivers and transportation for medical appointments and shopping. This is a volunteer organization that aligns your loved one with a friendly presence, all carried out under the Safe Start parameters of our Governor and CDC guidelines during this COVID-19 time.  
TLC is actively seeking seniors who would like the friendship and support of a TLC volunteer.  Please call Claudia Swenson, 360-561-6090 or Kathy Miller, 509-470-2843, for more information.
