ORGANIZATION: Elara Caring
Please visit the new page to apply.
Are you a veteran? Are you interested in helping other veterans? Elara Caring, a leading care provider in your area, is looking for compassionate Veteran Volunteers willing to donate their time and provide service support to local Veteran Hospice patients and their families. We are partners with the We Honor Veterans organizations and strive to provide excellent care to our Veteran patients. We also honor veterans for their unselfish time and service with periodic pinning ceremonies. As a volunteer, you may provide companionship, play cards, read to the patient, write letters for patients or reminisce about their time served for the country. There is no physical care involved. Hours are flexible, weekdays, evenings, or weekends. Typically, we ask that you would visit your assigned patient 1-2 hours per week. Make a real difference in someone's life!
To adhere to safety protocols volunteers must: wear a surgical mask, take your own temperature prior to each visit ( temperature must be under 99.9 to visit), use hand sanitizer before, after and throughout the visit as necessary.
