This manual is intended to help human services agencies to create home care volunteer programs. The manual is organized in nine sections. The first section provides initial information about volunteer programs that agencies should consider before starting a program. It is followed by two sections that provide an overview of the program's structure and benefits and some ideas on designing a volunteer program, specifying volunteer activities, and defining volunteer roles. The fourth section suggests methods of recruiting and selecting volunteers, and the fifth section outlines ways of managing volunteer activities. Section 6 describes volunteer orientation and training, and section 7 includes general information on volunteer programs, including sample job descriptions. South Carolina policies regarding volunteer programs are outlined in the eighth section. The final section consists of 16 forms to be used in a volunteer program, such as volunteer agreements, a code of ethics, a home management consent form, a volunteer evaluation form, a time sheet, and a monthly service report.
