Are you caring for a family member or friend and in need of an extra set of hands?
You can find a volunteer to help you and your caree. Before you begin to look for your volunteer, keep in mind:
1. We simply let you know about volunteers available to help in your area, your caree’s area or via phone or email. We don’t endorse or recommend any volunteer nor do we perform background checks.
2. You’ll want to do your due diligence when selecting a volunteer. Check references and meet in person in a public place (coffee shop, restaurant) so you both can get to know each other. Ask questions about the volunteer’s previous caregiving experience and about ways he or she can help you.
3. Choose a volunteer that you like and who can help you. If you don’t like the volunteer, don’t use him or her.
4. Be clear as to what kind of help you need. Not sure what kind of help you need? We’ve got a series of articles on Caregiving.com which can help you pinpoint when you need help. Read Truth &Team: Telling Your Truth So You Can Find Your Team.
5. Let us know about your experience finding and using a volunteer by emailing Denise.
