Looking to make a difference in the life of someone in your community? Become an Elara Caring Hospice Volunteer! Our volunteers enhance the lives of those receiving our services by providing compassionate visits. If you have an interest in serving persons facing end of life issues and being a part of a fantastic hospice team, we want to hear from you.

Please consider giving a little time each week to a hospice patient who would enjoy social visits. Read a book with them, help write a letter to a friend, share memories, listen. Individuals receiving hospice care appreciate the additional care and support of a volunteer.

Due to COVID-19, we are unable to visit patients face-to-face at this time, but we are able to send cards and make phone calls.
