Did you know that volunteering could add five years to one's life?
This is just one reason to volunteer. Volunteering also provides people with the opportunity to make new friends, improve skills, add to resumes, and most importantly, help the families who use our services. Volunteering is a way to give back to the community, while becoming part of our community here at Cheshire Medical Center/Dartmouth-Hitchcock Keene.
Volunteers are here because they truly want to be here - to help, and to make a difference. Volunteers come from different walks of life and from many diverse backgrounds. They bring a wealth of experience to their volunteer responsibilities. They bring their stories, their knowledge and their uniqueness. But they all have one thing in common - the desire to help others. As one volunteer says, "I may be helping others, but I get back more than I give."
Who can be a volunteer? If you are at least 16 years old and have a desire to work in the healthcare setting, you can apply. Volunteers are required to fill out an application which includes background checks (17 and older), personal references and medical references (immunizations). Volunteers are also required to attend our orientation program. Please call or email the Director of Volunteer Services for more information.
