Santa Barbara Chapter
Since 1995, National Share The Care has been empowering ordinary people with everything they need to create and maintain volunteer caregiving circles to help someone they know in need of support no matter the circumstances. Workshops, presentations and lectures are offered; accreditation training for nurses as well.
Our ERI Living Lab Co-Founder, Nola Force, has started the first group in Santa Barbara. She has been teaching the model Share the Care to the local community. This educational program "Seeding the Share The Care Model in Your Community" - helps to bring an evidence-informed group caregiving model to a local community to demonstrate to ordinary people how to pool their talent, time and resources to assist a friend or loved one facing health or medical crisis. It turns their offers of "What can I do to help?" into positive action. It prevents caregiver burnout while offering group members profound inner rewards.
