Are you searching for something that will provide you with a strong sense of connection to others? Do you desire to be a part of something that will connect you to others in a way that nothing else has?

Volunteering for Elara Caring as a hospice volunteer just may be the thing you have been searching for!

The main role of a volunteer is patient and family support. That looks like many different things! It can mean...

  • l Sitting with a hospice patient to allow family members a break
  • l Playing games with a hospice patient
  • l Pushing a hospice patient outside at the facility
  • l Running Errands
  • l Watching TV

But one thing is always the same......Being there!

If you have just a few hours a week to build a relationship that will enrich your life and the life of a hospice patient, call Elara Caring today at 517.740.9817 and start your journey!
