Did you know that there are four million family caregivers in California. Almost 25% of family caregivers caring for a loved one report their health is fair to poor. Nearly 50% of these caregivers are dealing with symptoms of mild to moderate depression. Over sixty percent report Anxiety or Depression in the past year.*
We have developed a comprehensive training curriculum for our Volunteer Care Specialists.
Our goal is to place our newly trained Volunteer care Specialists in homes to provide cost free respite to caregivers who are caring for someone at home. We have a list of caregivers who are waiting for this support from OSEC’s innovative service.
We need your help more than ever to accomplish these goals and help our community caregivers who are caring for their loved ones at home. You can make a difference now by going to our donate page and support us to get this service out to our community. You can also help by volunteering your time to help with program development, or other areas of opportunity. Call 530-477-6389.
Things can be overwhelming when you are caring for a loved one at home, and we understand how challenging the situation can become. We want you to know you are not alone. With our respite care service, we can offer you some peace of mind. Our hope atOne Source – Empowering Caregivers is that you can feel empowered by getting help, without feeling guilty.
We offer respite care to Caregivers to help improve the quality of life and make every day living more manageable. We assist you with non-medical companion care for your loved one, in the comfort of a familiar environment: your home. We build a foundation of trust and give you the support and peace of mind you need so you feel confident in your loved one’s happiness.
Working together to support the Caregiver and the needs of their loved ones…
