There was a time, not too long ago, when those suffering from life-altering illness were unconditionally supported by their families, friends, and surrounding communities. Support systems would swiftly wrap around the ailing, assisting them with their daily tasks, keeping them company so they didn’t feel isolated and scared.
Now, in a time when families are more dispersed than ever before and when personal connection is fading into the background, people confronting diseases like Cancer and HIV/AIDs find themselves alone and unable to carry out the most basic daily tasks. The things that were once easy and effortless quickly becomes exhausting, if not impossible.
That’s where Care Communities steps in. We link those in need with our Care Volunteers who provide the emotional nourishment and practical support they need to live a full life.
So if you, or someone you know and love, is fighting a serious illness without a strong support system, Care Communities wants you to know that you don’t have to be alone. Care Communities recruits and trains teams of volunteers who provide non-medical, practical, and emotional support to forge the connections that matter most.
