Volunteers are a very important part of the SSM Health St. Clare Meadows Care Center team and help us to provide exceptional care to our residents and patients.

Where Volunteers Serve
Volunteers perform many services and tasks at SSM Health St. Clare Meadows Care Center including assisting the activity department with many of the facility’s activities and events, one-on-one visits with residents, clerical tasks, and entertaining, along with other special projects. Volunteers are placed in positions based upon their interests and skills, and position availability.
General Orientation for All Volunteers
All volunteers attend a general orientation. We believe it is important to understand SSM Health St. Clare Meadows Care Center's history, mission, values and policies. The information provided will help you better serve our patients and residents, visitors and employees and will allow you to enjoy your volunteer experience even more. The Volunteer Coordinator will schedule a date and time for this orientation that works for everyone.
Students are encouraged to volunteer to learn more about healthcare careers, gain resume building experience and complete school volunteer hours. Student volunteers must also follow all program requirements listed above.
