Project Description

Volunteers provide non-medical care and temporary relief (respite) to family members who are caring for a loved one at home and provide reassurance phone calls and/or visits to those who live alone. Confidentiality is upheld for all concerned. Anyone needing these services or wishing to provide them may contact us! If you are comfortable sitting with a person who is ill, just being a kind and trusted presence, or if you wish to call and/or visit those who live alone, these ministries may be for you. Catholic Charities will provide appropriate training to those who provide respite care.
