Volunteer in Extended Care

Brighten Days of Extended Care Patients

In 2009, volunteers in our extended care facility gave nearly 100,000 hours of service. Volunteer opportunities are available in almost every department except maintenance and medical records.

Pet Therapy Participation

Our active pet therapy program includes more than 45 pets, and we're always looking for more. Pets don’t have to be certified, but must follow facility and DHEC guidelines.
