Elara Caring

  • 3 people are interested

Elara Caring is looking for passionate volunteers who want to make a difference in the lives of our Hospice patients and their families.

Hospice is specialized care to provide support for you and your family during advanced illness. Elara Caring focuses on comfort and quality of life rather than curative care- our passion is to enable you to live each day as fully as possible. Hospice is not about giving up; it is about giving hope.

Hospice gives individuals the opportunity to make their own decisions about how and where they wish to live the remainder of their lives, while continuing to receive an exceptional level of compassionate care from our dedicated family of health care professionals.

We offer regular volunteer opportunities and an Advanced Hospice Volunteer Certification Program for students 17 years old and older.
