Volunteer Spotlight

Jan Caruso joined the Care Initiatives Hospice volunteer team in Albia in December, 2014 after experiencing the great support and services offered by Hospice at the time of her husband’s passing.

“I enjoy spending time with people who have gained wisdom from many years,” she says. Jan is generous with her time often reading to patients, chatting with them or family and giving hugs freely. She embodies the true meaning of Hospice. Thank you, Jan!
