"Our lives are like quilts - bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched together with love."


At Allay Hospice, our goal is to ensure that those with a life-limiting illness live each day to the fullest in comfort and dignity. Allay Companion Volunteers personalize, support & enhance our patients' lives by bringing the gift of friendship through regular visits with our patients.

These volunteers offer...

  • Companionship by just being there and offering to read, play music or a game, share stories and memories, taking a walk, or providing assistance with other non-medical tasks. There are also times to simply sit quietly with a patient (or family member) to let them know they are not alone.
  • Emotional Support by listening to one's life story, allowing the expression of feelings, holding a hand, giving a needed hug, and offering words of comfort.
  • Respite Care by staying with the patient while the family caregiver enjoys a moment alone to run errands, make appointments or simply take the tiem to care for themselves.

Companion Volunteers give the greatest gift of all - themselves!
