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. Contact us to attend the next volunteer event or begin the training process!
