However you choose to volunteer at Circle of Life Hospice, there’s a place for you. Whether you want to work directly with our patients & families, or in an administrative role, you can make a difference in someone’s life…starting with your own! Our volunteers often say, “I get back so much more than I give!”
Our volunteers are a critical part of our care team, serving our patients and families in both direct care and supporting roles. If you are looking for a meaningful way to give of your time, please contact Susan Parish our Volunteer Manager at 872-3392 or email@example.com
