The gifts of compassion, care and grace are amazing blessings to patients and families facing a life-limiting illness. Caris’ volunteers are generous people who give of their time and talents to serve others in a unique and selfless manner. Caris’ Volunteer Program invites community members to give a small portion of their time to those whose time is limited.

Caris’ volunteers provide an array of services. They serve patients and families. From spending quality time and companionship with patients, to mowing yards, to simply running errands for a family, each action makes a difference and no amount of assistance is too small. They also serve on behalf of the hospice. Volunteers may also give time in Caris offices doing administrative tasks such as filing or answering the phones or being out in the community representing the hospice. Some may also serve on an infrequent basis but still meet unique needs. Special Project volunteers may offer their gifts, skills and resources in unique ways.

The ways in which Caris volunteers may give are unlimited. Their actions encourage and make a difference for patients and families. Their actions not only bless others but Caris’ volunteers also receive many positive returns by being a volunteer.
