Swapping Stories
Volunteers provide friendly visits and help with practical tasks.

The little things matter! AseraCare Hospice has an ongoing need for volunteers to provide regular weekly or twice-monthly visits to our patients who are terminally ill. Companions may provide friendly socialization visits, offer relief to a caregiver for a brief period of time, assist with practical tasks such as reading, cleaning, or errand-running. Provide a compassionate listening ear and a helpful hand!
