(207) 594-6850We welcome the services of volunteers at the Knox Center for Long Term Care. There are many opportunities to help, whether working directly with patients or doing office work to help keep things running smoothly.
In addition to being a meaningful way to serve to our community, there are many benefits to being a healthcare volunteer. Volunteering offers an opportunity to research a new career, meet new people and acquaint oneself with the community. Ask any volunteer and they will tell you their lives are richer for the experience!
Whatever your interest, hobby, or skill, most likely there is a way to share it as a volunteer. We'd love to have you be a part of our family here at Knox!
