What is Caregiver Support Ministry?
We are offering Caregivers a few hours of relief from their everyday tasks by having 2 volunteers remain with your loved one for a few daytime hours while you take a break. This time can be used for attending Mass, going to a doctor's appointment, going out to lunch with a friend, going shopping, or any way you care to use it. In some cases, we may not be able to provide this ministry of presence and support based on the needs of your loved one, as we are not trained medical personnel. We feel certain however, that there are enough caregivers in the parish who would be eligible for this assistance.
We are also offering “Casseroles for Caregivers” once a month to give you a day off from fixing dinner. Casseroles will be delivered to you on the second Tuesday of each month.
In addition, we have established a Prayer Line to be used by Caregivers for any prayer request(s) you may have, either for your loved one, a special intention, etc. This will be forwarded to our volunteers who will pray for your intention.
