About

AseraCare Hospice Music Volunteers are volunteers who specialize in sharing songs or instrumental music with those on hospice services and their family members. Bring your existing musical skill and musical training to enhance the quality of life for a patient on hospice and/or members of their family. Often, regularly scheduled visits are requested, however music volunteers may also be asked to provide musical visits for a group of patients at a facility as outreach for our agency.
