Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Caring Hands helps create one-on-one matches between caring volunteers and seniors over 60 in need, enabling them to stay in their own homes and remain independent as long as safely possible by providing free non-medical in-home assistance, friendship, and transportation.
Caring Hands Volunteer Caregivers Program started in 1998 as a collaboration between John Muir Health, social service agencies, congregations of various religious faiths and the community-at-large. Seniors in Central, South or East Contra Costa County who may otherwise feel lonely and isolated receive support and companionship from caring volunteers, enriching the lives of both. Services are provided regardless of income, gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation or religious beliefs.
Training and supervision for every volunteer is provided after acceptance into the program, and seniors and volunteers receive ongoing support and case management from Licensed Clinical Social Workers.
