Volunteers play a crucial role at Hebrew HealthCare. They are truly extensions of our staff and they help us provide better care; they enhance the quality of so many lives while transforming their own lives. Our volunteers literally span all ages, from 1 to 100. Volunteers can choose to have direct involvement with residents or provide other essential services.
Give the gift of Yourself: Become a Volunteer!
For more than 100 years Hebrew HealthCare and its affiliates, Hebrew Home and Hospital, Hebrew Community Services and Hoffman SummerWood Community, have depended on the generosity of volunteers, while at the same time have given volunteers an opportunity to make a difference in the lives of others. Providing compassionate, quality care to our residents, members and clients is our top priority, and is at the heart of everything we do. At Hebrew HealthCare, we believe that meaningful interactions with members of the community are essential to quality care. That's why our volunteers are so important. They enrich lives!

Do you have a special talent that you would like to share? Design a program that uses your expertise! Do you have a repertoire of stories that engage and entertain? Our residents and members would love to hear them. Do you have some spare time to listen to vignettes that our residents have to offer? Not only can you enrich their lives, you'll be surprised at how they will enrich your life. Our volunteers range in age from 3 to 93. Some volunteers join us on special holidays, some volunteer once a week. Some come in with friends or family members. All of our volunteers make a difference, in the lives of others, and in their own lives.
