ShareCare Network is a safe place for families to exchange free ad-hoc respite care with each other and volunteers. Caregivers suffer from depression at a rate nearly 3 times higher than the general population, and over 40% of caregivers have symptoms of depression. Our goal is to unite families that work tirelessly to provide care for loved ones with special needs, chronic illness, cancer, the elderly and other healthcare complications.
All volunteers go through an application process and background check. Volunteers will be asked to leave the program if they fail to arrive at an appointment time (not withstanding extenuating circumstances), fail to participate in the program, or fail to follow our honor code in any way.
