Volunteers provide important services to hospice organizations and the people they serve. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months and weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers, or helping in the office, the contributions of volunteers are essential to the important work.
Caris relies on volunteer support to provide excellent end-of-life care to each patient and family.
By being a hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made an impact in another person’s life.
