Volunteer Services:

 

Over the years many dedicated volunteers have helped our patients, residents, families and staff because they wanted to make a difference. Volunteers are an important part of our team and can be seen throughout the facility in a variety of areas.

 

Our program was developed to improve the overall quality of life for those who enter into our care. Team work and caring is what it is all about!

Whether you would like to gain exposure to health care careers or want to give back to the community we have just the right fit for your talents and skills. Our volunteers are provided a structured orientation to ensure a comfort level when volunteering.
