ONE SOURCE- EMPOWERING CAREGIVERS
EVERYONE IS WELCOME TO JOIN IN ON THE PROGRAM
NEW VOLUNTEER RESPITE TRAINING HAPPENS MONTHLY
Registration is required. Call (530) 205-9514 or email us at ed@EmpoweringCaregivers.org. The Volunteer is asked to commit to one year of service to the organization. A personal interview is required. The Volunteer training program is intensive and comprehensive, covering a wide range of topics. There is a module taught by an expert in the field that provides an overview of:
- Caring for the Caregiver
- Listening skills and self-care as a volunteer
- Family systems and communication
- Illness, aging, cognitive loss, and behavior management
- Spirituality, grief, and bereavement
- Volunteer protocols and the many roles of the OSEC volunteer.
A monthly meeting of support and education is offered for all volunteers: office, in home assessments, in home visits, and telephone volunteers. Many OSEC volunteers visiting in the home bond with their “caregivers,” often spending more time with them than they have committed to, and care about their charges, and need to talk about their feelings and experiences with others in similar situations.
One Source – Empowering Caregivers is growing, and will be adding programs as funding permits. If you cannot volunteer on a regular basis, there are always other opportunities available to support our mission. We encourage a monthly donation.
One Source Empowering Caregivers is a one of a kind, non-profit volunteer organization who reaches family caregivers, the invisible care providers.
Our goal is to bring HOPE to the CAREGIVER through respite services, resources, and encouraging positive self-care practices.
