Caris Healthcare Volunteers make a difference in the lives of Hospice patients and families. Caris needs volunteers in the following areas:

1) Patient and family care volunteers: provide support in the final moments of life, reading and writing letters for the patient, help with Legacy projects such as "Hands of Grace" and scrapbooking, spiritual care and prayer, and bereavement care.

2) Administrative volunteers: work in each local Caris office completing tasks such as filing, making and answering phone calls, or assisting the Volunteer Coordinator.

3) Special project and event volunteers: offer your own talents, expertise, and gifts to patients and families without committing to patient and family contact. For example: Threads of Grace Volunteers make blankets, stuffed animals and other items for comfort of the patient; Youth and Children's groups make crafts or provide acts of service in community such as mowing lawns; clowning or singing groups, memorial services, and health fairs.
