Mount Sinai Beth Israel
Volunteering is a wonderful way to give to others in the metropolitan community. At Beth Israel, there are many ways to help give patients support and comfort. The following are just a few of the volunteer opportunities available throughout the year:

Hospice Volunteers
Volunteers are a vital part of the hospice program everywhere. According to the National Hospice Organization, over 70,000 volunteers serve in hospice programs in the United States. There are many ways volunteers can assist in the Jacob Perlow Hospice Program, including personal care assistance, general household tasks and bereavement counseling. Whether they just offer a listening ear or share their ownexperiences, volunteers make a big difference to the patients and their families.
