Update for volunteers regarding COVID-19 concerns:
Capital Caring Health leadership is constantly monitoring CDC updates and making needed changes to our protocols based on CDC recommendations. unfortunately, we are temporarily suspending in-person visits from volunteers to help ensure we minimize any possible unintended exposure for patients and families – as well as helping safeguard the wellbeing of our volunteers as more cases are being reported in our service areas. Many nursing facilities and assisted living communities are also prohibiting all visitation except from medical staff.
We hope many of you will assist making supportive telephone calls, where appropriate, to those you have been visiting and might also assist us with tuck-in calls for all patients in each region. We also invite volunteers to write letters, make cards, and do other creative things to support our families.
Volunteers play key roles throughout Capital Caring Health
We are always looking for caring, compassionate people like you, who want to give something back to their community.

Capital Caring Health prides itself on providing the very highest level of care to each patient. Because of this commitment, all staff and volunteers are screened and evaluated. Standards of conduct apply to all paid and volunteer staff.
Please note our One Year Rule for Patient Care Volunteering:
Due to the profound effects of grief, we ask you to wait at least one year after having experienced a loss before becoming a Capital Caring Health Hospice Services patient volunteer. We have found, based over 35 years of experience that it takes that long to live with one’s own grief before truly being able to help others in similar situations. Having said that, you are welcome to help us in our offices with important administrative support, to join our Facebook community and, of course, to attend our many community events. We would love to hear from you.
