Care Communities recruits and trains volunteers to provide emotional and domestic support to those affected by serious illness, including cancer and HIV.
Care Communities currently offers Care Team Program
Care Teams consist of 3-6 trained volunteers that provide companionship and share the efforts of assistance with daily living tasks (such as light housework, running errands, or providing transportation to an appointment) for a Care Partner, who is someone living with a serious illness without a strong support system. In addition, Care Partners have the opportunity to receive case management to assist with accessing the comprehensive network of healthcare services, as well as other support services.
Care Communities provides volunteer Care Teams for persons living with serious illness especially HIV or Cancer. The Care Teams provide practical and emotional support, such as running errands, transportation to medical appointments, light housekeeping, and companionship. Each volunteer is asked for four hours a month. There is a 3 hour Volunteer Training to discuss the Care Team model, boundaries, confidentiality, etc. Our next Care Team Training is Wednesday, June 28 from 6:00pm - 9:00pm
Each interested person is asked to fill out an initial application.
