Called to Care | A Resource for Lay Caregivers
Called to Care: A Resource for Lay Caregivers provides general advice to help UCC churches determine what kind of program would work and how to organize it. Many programs are hosted by local churches, and others may involve several churches in an area.
The manual is also used by programs in healthcare facilities or other care-giving organizations for volunteer visitation training. It's even been used ecumenically. The 2008 revision updated all of the care cards with newer resources, websites, and organizational information. The beginning chapters of the manual received minor updates as well.

The notebook version is easy to browse through, while the identical CD version allows for emailing of select parts of the manual to caregivers in the program. Buying both at once is most economical.
