Share the Care Napa Valley (501(c)3 Tax ID # 81-5288335) started about three years ago as a program of Molly’s Angels, a local nonprofit that focuses on providing transportation for seniors to medical appointments. The focus of Share the Care is training volunteers who visit local seniors needing assistance to help them find resources, provide support where needed, and continue checking in them over time. Currently, eight volunteers do everything from taking people grocery shopping, reading to the blind, home repairs, help with moving and doing all the fill-in tasks that might normally be done by family or friends. Share the Care has also developed a dental care support program, helping pay for dentures and tooth extractions for low-income seniors, and paying for home-delivered dinners for people who were recovering from a hospital stay and needed additional food in the evenings. To date, over 800 people have received assistance from Share the Care, including help with moving, downsizing, medical equipment, food, home visits, advocacy and, most importantly, making a difference. www.napavalleysharethecare.com
