I am a member of the Caring Hands Volunteer Caregivers Program.
The mission of Caring Hands is to create one-on-one matches between caring volunteers and frail, isolated, and disabled seniors over the age of 60. The program helps them to stay in their homes and remain independent as long as safely possible by providing free non-medical in-home assistance.
I am very fortunate to be able to volunteer with senior citizens who need this kind of help. It gives me an opportunity to give back to the community in a way that many times I feel that I am the recipient and the senior is the volunteer.
I have been elected as Chairman of the Hispanic Outreach Sub-Committee for Caring Hands. My job is to extend this wonderful program to the Hispanic community in Contra Costa, both for volunteers and for seniors who need the assistance.
