Caring Hands needs volunteers to provide friendly visits, companionship, social outings or transportation to appointments, assistance with shopping and errands for a frail or isolated senior in Central, South, or East Contra Costa County. Volunteers may provide respite care to give a family member a break, read mail and write letters, or plan an outing at a museum or park.

One-on-one matches are the greatest need, but substitute driver volunteers are also welcomed. Our ideal volunteer can spare time on a weekday. Volunteers may choose what geographical area(s) within the county they'd prefer to visit. The program is flexible to fit with a volunteer's schedule. Match volunteers usually contribute 1-3 hours a week, and there is no minimum for those who will give occasional rides.
