The professionals at Life Choice Hospice were extremely helpful in getting me set up as both a patient visitor and office admin volunteer. The Willingboro office in particular has an outstanding team of folks, lead by Director of Volunteers Ms. Sharon Caccamo, who have made my volunteer experience rewarding. Also, I am an Air Force Veteran and the Willingboro office goes to great lengths to show kindness to veterans and I am thankful for everyone at Life Choice Hospice!

They are very friendly and accommodating, I was worried that I wouldn't be able to volunteer this summer because I didn't have enough time but Life Choice took the time to meet me, had personalized training sessions to fit my schedule and got me started right away and I love where I'm volunteering, the staff is fantastic and the patients are great
I have been an administrative volunteer at Life Choice in NJ for almost 2 years, and it has been a terrific experience. Sharon, the volunteer coordinator, is so nice. She always has a smile on her face and makes me feel both useful and appreciated. I learned many useful things from the training which will be helpful to me in dealing with my elderly relatives. Also Sharon has been flexible with my very crazy schedule. I get thanked by everyone at Life Choice, but really I am the one who should be thanking them because I gain so much from volunteering!
