Carroll County Community Spotlight: October Caring Carroll
21 June 2018 Uncategorized
Caring Carroll is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, founded in December 2007, that matches trained volunteers to assist with the non-medical needs of older, frail, isolated adults in Carroll County, MD, with limited resources, who wish to remain living independently.
In the video below two of our care receivers talk about what their experiences with Caring Carroll have meant to them.
Our volunteers offer services such as light housekeeping and meal preparation, errands and grocery shopping, transportation within the county, yard work, minor home repairs, reassuring social phone calls and friendly visits. Caring Carroll “matches” volunteers and care recipients based on shared interests and location proximity in order to ensure a good experience for both. Volunteers set their own schedule, but most spend 1-2 hours per week with their care receiver. We also provide training, support, and liability insurance for our volunteers. All volunteers are background checked. Since 2007, we have served over 300 elderly and disabled residents of Carroll County. We currently have over 100 ongoing volunteer-care receiver matches. Caring Carroll volunteers provide numerous one time requests to our Care Receivers. We would like to serve many more individuals – and with your help, we can!
