Caring Hands - Maria Amadea and Stacy Appel


Caring Hands began in 1998 as a collaboration between John Muir Health, social service agencies, congregations of various faiths, and the community-at-large. Caring Hands promotes independence and well-being for local seniors through meaningful, one-on-one relationships with caring volunteers. They create matches between volunteers and people over 60 years old who may be frail, isolated, or disabled. By providing free non-medical assistance, they help seniors stay in their homes and remain independent as long as safely possible. Volunteers provide life-enhancing services such as friendly visits and companionship, social outings, transportation and escort to medical appointments, help with shopping and errands, respite care to give a break to a family caregiver, reading mail and letter-writing. Services are generally provided once a week, for 1-3 hours to meet a senior’s ongoing need, and are scheduled on the times and days that work best for the volunteer. The Caring Hands staff consists of a Manager, a Social Services Coordinator, a Volunteer Coordinator, and a Department Secretary, supporting over 300 volunteers and approximately 400 seniors. Come hear from the Manager, Maria Amadea, PhD and a Licensed Clinical Social Worker whom oversees the day to day operations of the department. You'll also hear from Stacy Appel, the volunteer coordinator.
