About

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 individuals willing to give a few hours per month. Our patients reside in private homes, nursing home and assisted-living facilities throughout Atlantic, Burlington, Camden, Cumberland, Gloucester and Salem Counties.

Patient Visitor Volunteers help by providing companionship and a social outlet to patients. Volunteers visit on a regular basis to talk, listen, play games, share simple activities with the patient or provide presence. 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.
