Here's one of the many stories about a caregiver who is receiving no cost services from The Center for Volunteer Caregiving.
In 2010, Adele’s long journey as a caregiver began; one which brought her to The Center. Each day brought new challenges. Initially, she continued to teach and was able to leave Nick at home. The few hours of visits from The Center’s volunteers provided comforting support. Then over the years, as Nick’s disease progressed and multiple care options failed, Adele began to rely more and more on The Center.
Adele says The Center “has greatly enriched both our lives, I feel more “normal” having others share my world.” Read more about Nick and Adele (or watch the video above) in our Caregiver Feature. The Center has been a resource to caregivers just like Adele for over 25 years. Getting people to the doctor, providing respite, and helping them to keep their loved ones home as long as possible.
Please consider a gift of $100 or whatever you are able to give to support The Center for Volunteer Caregiving and ensure that volunteer caregiving continues in Wake County. Our goal for our Fall Giving Campaign is $25,000. We need your support in order to keep helping families including Adele and Nick.
