How to Volunteer

  • "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."

No experience is required to become a volunteer at CareFirst -- just an interest in helping others.

Volunteers are a special group of people. They volunteer their time, their hands, and a warm heart. They expect nothing in return other than knowing they helped another human being. Listening is the greatest skill volunteers can offer to patients and families. Being there when called upon creates a memorable relationship. 

In addition to working with patients and families, CareFirst volunteers also provide support in the office, with the Fundraising Committee and with community education.

For further information, please feel free to visit our office at 3805 Meads Creek Road, 
Painted Post, NY 14870. You may also telephone our Volunteer Coordinator at 607.962.3100, or send an email.
