Be a calm presence by volunteering through Tamarisk

Be a calm presence and make a new friend when volunteering at Tamarisk!

Volunteers provide regularly scheduled respite for caregivers and companionship for the patient. For approximately 2-4 hours each week, Tamarisk volunteers assure the safety and well-being of the patient (companion) while the family caregiver is occupied or away. During home visits, Tamarisk volunteers socialize, play cards and other games, share a movie or listen to music with the companion. They might prepare a light meal, run errands, shop for groceries, help with housekeeping tasks or read quietly to the companion while he or she rests.

Tamarisk has seen a significant increase in the number of families this past year who need support but are put on a wait list. This service is made possible through the many efforts of volunteers.

We look forward to hearing from you to discuss attending an upcoming volunteer event or to begin the training process.
