Volunteer Caregiver Corps Toolkit
Livingston County Catholic Charities and Altarum release a Toolkit on How to Create and Operate a Volunteer Caregiver Corps. This toolkit is informed by LCCC’s 30-years of experience running a volunteer caregiver program and is the first of its kind to be developed for community-based organizations seeking to organize volunteers to assist aging adults and persons with disabilities with non-medical services.
The toolkit was created with funding from the Michigan Health Endowment Fund to address the need for reliable long-term care supports in communities across the state and the country. It is a comprehensive 340-page customizable toolkit providing community leaders, program directors and managers a step-by-step guide covering topics from recruiting, screening, training to outreach and marketing to promote their local program.
We are thankful to our partners at Altarum, a non-profit research and consulting organization that creates and implements solutions to advance health among vulnerable and publicly insured populations. Click here to read the full press release.
