Program Overview

This program trains volunteers to provide temporary short-term relief for caregivers of individuals with special needs.  The idea is to provide overworked caregivers with a little free time to do errands or go to appointments or shopping or anything that they need to give them a break from the strains associated with being an in-home caregiver.

Training

A training is provided to help people gain the skills necessary to be a companion.  In order to be a volunteer, one needs to connect with Judith Bromley, do an interview and a background check and attend the training.  Individuals are then paired with a suitable person in their community for 10 visits.
