  • "Our family would like to thank everyone involved in my husband's care. You helped us to fulfill his final wish and make his final journey from home. You are all amazing and special; you took great care of him as well as his family."

  • "Your caring staff is so valuable to families during critical times. Your support is very comforting and appreciated. We are truly grateful."

  • "We were blessed with the loving care you gave our Dad. The nurse was great and treated him like he was part of her family. We are forever grateful for all of you. Thank you."

  • "To the Hospice folks, words cannot express our thanks and appreciation for your tender touch and loving professionalism during our Dad's illness. We will always remember our nurse's expert skills and abilities as well as her personal touch. "

  • "We want to thank everyone who cared for our Mother. Everyone was so nice and caring and went over and beyond what we could have hoped for. Thank you all."

The CareFirst team makes a difference because remarkable people support us with their time and talent.

There are many opportunities for volunteer assistance at CareFirst, from manning our fundraiser booths and helping out with office mailings, to working directly with patients and assisting their families with daily activities.

Many people choose to volunteer because of the positive previous experience of a family member or friend who has received hospice or palliative care.

Volunteers not only provide valuable services, but provide needed warmth, companionship, friendship and support to patients and their caregivers.

We invite anyone with an interest in providing support to CareFirst to apply to become a member of our team. Please contact our volunteer coordinator at 607.962.3100.
