Twenty-five years of caregiving ministry have provided us with many useful resources to share. We have published Congregational Caregiving: Guidance for Caregiving Teams as a resource to congregations and agencies who wish to create and build a volunteer caregiving program in their community.
To request access to this publication and others – and in order to create a community in which information and experience can be shared – we ask that you please register with our Resource Exchange. Thes printed materials will be sent to you at your request. We will charge for shipping. Please contact Earl Shelp to request these materials.
Information on how to create and conduct a team within a single congregation or collaborative efforts among congregations as a community caregiving program. It is available through our website at no charge. The outline of the manual is available for you to review.
This Care Team Toolkit represents some of the wisdom accumulated since 1985 regarding Care Team service and building strong Teams of volunteer caregivers. The content is not intended nor designed to be a prescription about how things must be done. It is presented as a resource of ideas when a Team decides that one or more aspect of its life may be done differently or improved.
This curriculum consists of 36 continuing education modules of value to a caregiving team program. Each discussion is grouped under a heading of leadership development, team building, or caregiving. The module may be presented in whole or in part at times when the content is relevant to a team’s life and service. These are teachable moments when a specific module’s guidance, suggested techniques, or wisdom will be understood and applied.
