Caregiver Support

Caregivers are faced with a host of new responsibilities, many of which are unfamiliar and intimidating and can ultimately create caregiver burnout. As a result, the Caregiver Support Program is a short-term respite and education program that provides assistance and support to those providing care to family and others.



Caregiver Support Email List

Opportunities are varied and based upon the client’s needs. Volunteer responsibilities can increase as the volunteer and client become familiar with each other. If the volunteer has a car and agrees to transport the client, activities may include running errands, taking the client to appointments, helping the homebound get out of the house, shopping, etc. Other activities may include visiting and talking, cooking, light yard and house work, helping with phone calls, etc.

Volunteer Requirements

Pass an extensive background check and be at least 18 years of age (exceptions have been made for younger mature volunteers). Time commitments vary per client.

Training and Support

Orientation on a personal basis is provided depending on what duty(s) the volunteer performs. Ongoing support is provided through email, phone, and personal contact as needed.
