You're never alone when you're with Carefor

The Palliative Care Volunteer Visiting Program helps ease the burden of dealing with a terminal illness through dedicated and helpful volunteers. The goal of Palliative Care is to allow the client and caregiver the highest quality of life each day. It’s also meant to assist with alleviating physical, emotional and spiritual suffering.

The Volunteer Visiting Program seeks to allow client and caregivers the time and energy needed for each other.
