How you help Volunteers will continue to be key to the success of Caring House. We will strive to match each volunteer’s interests and skills with a Caring House need, so the volunteer assignment benefits both the volunteer and the work of Caring House.
About us Imagine a place of peace, a home to spend last days surrounded by love and support. Imagine a place where family members and friends are freed from care duties and get to spend their energy supporting and connecting with their loved one—and with each other. Caring House is that place.
