  • Would you like to spend time with a senior care recipient in Sammamish - engaging in conversation, going for a short walk, completing a jigsaw puzzle - while ensuring a dedicated caregiver some much needed respite?

  • Would you enjoy supporting a family caregiver whose hope it is to find care companionship for her mother while she takes some time to be with friends?

  • Volunteer hours are generally flexible but if you have availability on the weekend or weekday afternoon that would be ideal.

  • Meet other volunteers while sharing this opportunity by being a part of a small team in the Sammamish area.

Volunteer Care Teams provide caregivers an opportunity for much-needed respite and self-care by working together with other volunteer team members to provide social, emotional, and practical support, helping to alleviate social isolation and caregiver burnout.

No minimum experience needed; Training and ongoing support provided.

As one caregiver said of her Care Team: "I truly am grateful for our team. Their kindness and their readiness to provide meaningful interaction with my husband [the care recipient] has been greatly beneficial to me not feeling isolated and alone. This week your team allowed me to see people I had not seen since before the Pandemic. All of the team is warm, friendly, and compassionate."
