Build Your Local Caregiver Network

LotsahelpinghandsLOTSA HELPING HANDS powers online caring Communities that help restore health and balance to caregivers’ lives. Their service brings together caregivers and volunteers through online communities that organize daily life during times of medical crisis or caregiver exhaustion in neighborhoods and communities worldwide. It’s free and seems easy from the testimonials posted on their site.

Caregivers benefit from the gifts of much needed help, emotional support, and peace of mind, while volunteers find meaning in giving back to those in need.

This resource is appropriate for and apparently has a track record of success in helping when you are already managing a crisis or ongoing responsibilities and don’t have the time or energy to coordinate those around you who are volunteering to help. Situations: sudden health crisis, ongoing health condition, military deployment, etc.

I discovered this tool, Lotsa Helping Hands, on the website of Four Seasons Hospice, here in Western North Carolina. What an amazing resource!
