About

Celtic Volunteers visit with patients in the Inpatient Hospice Unit in Wilkes Barre-PA; provide companionship to patients in skilled nursing facilities in Luzerne, Lackawanna, Carbon, Monroe, Pike, and Wayne counties; and provide respite or companionship to patients in their homes.

Volunteers also assist with clerical duties and work with the bereavement program by writing condolence letters to families or making condolence calls to the bereaved. Volunteers make calls for our Tuck In Program to make sure our families have all the supplies and medications they need for the weekend.

Celtic is partnered with We Honor Veterans, performing pinning ceremonies, sending cards, and pairing a volunteer who is a veteran to a patient who is a veteran.

All volunteers receive background checks, TB tests, and are fully trained. Volunteers are supported by the Volunteer Cooridinator.
