About

Caring Hospice Services in Mount Laurel is a unique, holistic and cost effective service designed to meet the social, emotional, spiritual and physical needs of their patients and families as they face terminal illness. The mission of Caring Hospice Services is to coordinate patient and family services while respecting their choices, values and beliefs.

Caring Hospice Services has patients in communities throughout southern New Jersey who are in need of friendly visits from people willing to give a few hours per month. Their patients reside in private homes, nursing homes and assisted-living facilities throughout Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

Patient visit volunteers help by providing companionship and a social outlet to patients. Volunteers visit on a regular basis to talk, listen, play games or share simple activities with the patient. Caring Hospice Services will find a way to share your talents and interests with their patients and families.

Individualized training is provided free of charge without the need to travel to the Mount Laurel office. In keeping with Medicare requirements, background and medical checks are part of the training process.
