We are looking for caring individuals to provide companionship to hospice patients who are on service with Caris. Companionship may involve sitting and reminiscing, reading to a patient, or playing a musical instrument to brighten their day. Patients who request volunteers look forward to their visits and a chance to share their stories with people who care.

Each Caris employee and volunteer is trained through The Better Way program. Through this program, they learn a set of promises that we will uphold with each patient during their time under our care. These promises serve as our commitment to always doing what is right by our patients and their loved ones. Each promise is fulfilled during every patient visit to ensure that the needs and wishes of our patients and their loved ones are honored.
