Teleconference For CareCircle Volunteers
White Plains, NY - A teleconference for people interested in learning more about the Livable Communities CareCircle initiative and volunteers looking to start one will take place on April 24 at 7 p.m.Participants can call in to the teleconference to receive training from the comfort of their homes.
CareCircles are groups of volunteers who team up to help provide care to an individual – usually a very elderly person – with the needs of daily living that cannot be met with public funds such as pitching in to help prepare meals, walk the dog or simply provide companionship.
The CareCircle initiative is sponsored by Westchester County’s Department of Senior Programs and Services (DSPS) and the Westchester Public/Private Partnership for Aging Services.
To register, call (914) 813-6407. Participants will then be sent copies of the “Livable Communities CareCircle Guide – Step Forward & Give Back,” which was developed by DSPS’ Caregiver Coalition. The guide includes detailed instructions on how to start or further develop a CareCircle as well as general information for caregivers.
The conference call will be led by two Caregiver Coalition members who helped to develop the guide: Donna Sylvestri, a registered nurse and founder and president of Madison Home Management Corp. in Bronxville, and Robbin E. Sweeney, an attorney and Better Living Life Coach. Time will be set aside for questions.
Teleconference calls to support CareCircle members will take place every other month.
