Make a difference in an elder's life by volunteering with Serene Care Hospice. Volunteers support our patients by pet therapy, music therapy, personal time spent talking about the past, short trips and outings, letter writing and, sometimes, simply listening. Volunteers set their own schedules and increase our patient's quality of life, socially and emotionally. They are valuable part of our team and allow us to provide the best care possible.
