Make a real difference in someone's life!
Elara Caring, one of the nation's largest providers of home-based care, is looking for compassionate volunteers willing to donate their time to provide exceptional end-of-life care to local hospice patients and their families.
Volunteers are needed to visit with patients and engage them in activities such as playing music, singing, working on a craft project, sharing a special event, or simply providing companionship through listening, talking or holding a hand. Volunteers can sometimes provide respite care, allowing family members to take a much-needed break.
There are also volunteer opportunities within the Elara Caring Hospice office, assisting staff with mailings, filing, data entry and other special projects.
Elara Caring is also looking for pet therapy volunteers. These volunteers, along with their trained pet companions, visit Hospice patients in facilities. dogs must be certified in order to visit patients.
Hours are very flexibly, weekdays, evenings or weekends. Typically we ask that you visit your assigned patient 1-2 times per month, or help in the office 1-2 times per month.
