On a regular basis, Dr. Anthony Martini sees the need for the services offered by The Town of Warwick’s Friendly Visitor Program (FVP). In the course of his practice, it’s clear that there are local residents that can benefit from assistance in getting to medical appointments and the grocery store. Dr. Martini is doing his part to raise awareness of the FVP so folks can have the opportunity to volunteer and access services.
Dr. Martini sees the need for these vital services all the time in his practice. The cost of hiring someone to provide similar help is often out of reach and certainly difficult to manage. Volunteering is associated with lots of positive benefits for the giver and the receiver. Volunteers are trained, go through a background check at no charge, and are insured while they volunteer.
