Arizona Caregiver Coalition

  • 6 people are interested

The Arizona Caregiver Coalition is accepting volunteers living in Arizona to work on a telephone help line. We help family caregivers make informed decisions to better care for a family member.
More and more families find themselves in caregiver situations and need community support to meet their many challenges and responsibilities. We provide information, attentive listening, and friendly support. With COVID-19, family caregivers are even more isolated and in need of resources.

That's where the Caregiver Advocate volunteers come in. We provide training to become more knowledgeable about caregiving issues and concerns. Then, in turn, you can discuss various options with the caregivers over the phone or in e-mail. These conversations can empower the caregivers to set priorities and make thought-out decisions. We provide free training and we have a seasoned volunteer/staff assist you until you are ready to be on your own. You can work from your own home, times are flexible during the week.

Ideal for someone who has been (or knows others who have been) caring for a family member, but this is not required. Volunteers need to live in Arizona and be able to complete a background check.
