Time is our most precious gift....

Time is limited, yet of eternal value. What makes it so is how you use it and to whom you give it. Share your gift of time with a patient on their end-of-life journey. No special skills needed - just a listening ear and an open heart. It will be some of the most rewarding time you'll ever spend.
Elara Caring, a leading home health and hospice agency, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to local hospice patients and their families in the in the North Shore area including, Andover, N. Andover, Salisbury, Haverhill, Winchester, Billerica, Georgetown, Byfield and Newburyport area.
As hospice patients approach their end-of-life extra support is needed for both the patient and their family. We are looking for special volunteers to visit patients at the bedside and offer vigil and support. You could hold a hand, listen to music, recite poetry, or read to a patient, while providing support for the family at the patient's bedside.
Hours are flexible - weekdays, evenings, weekends and on an on-call basis. Orientation and training provided; no physical care to patient required.

For additional information please contact Jannine Vaciliou, Volunteer Coordinator, at 351-666-9340 or at jvaciliou@elara.com
