ABOUT Called to Care: A Resource for Lay Caregivers
This resource for lay caregiving programs provides general advice to help determine what kind of program would work and how to organize it. Many programs are hosted by local churches. Others may involve several churches in an area. The manual is also used by programs in healthcare facilities or other caregiving organizations, for volunteer visitation training. It’s been used ecumenically. The 2008 revision updated all of the care cards with newer resources, websites, and organizational information. The beginning chapters of the manual received minor updates too.
