More than 50 million Americans offer care and support for a chronically ill, aged or disabled loved one. Since 1994, the Support Team Network (www.supportteam.org) has responded to this growing healthcare crisis by training and organizing volunteers to give practical and emotional support to people living with illness.
You may be interested in building one Team to care for a family member or friend. This Guidebook provides a how-to plan for training and organizing volunteers into Support Teams, a proven method of equipping and sustaining volunteers for intentional, ongoing caring for persons with health care concerns.
You may be part of an organization seeking a workable way to care for persons who are sick and elderly within your community.
You may be a professional related to a particular area of healthcare and you want to enable volunteers to assist in caring for homebound patients.
Whatever your interest, the Support Team Network offers this Guidebook for your use.
