About

Our hospice patients have a lifetime of memories they are waiting to share with you and are ready to make new ones with you as well. Our Volunteer Department will provide you an engaging, empowering training to prepare you to serve our patients in one of the following ways:

Friendly Visitor

* Make memories with our in-home hospice patients and families throughout Southeastern Wisconsin. Our Volunteer Department carefully matches you to a patient and/or family based on personality, location, and availability. We even go with you on your first visit to make warm introductions (and to make sure your invisible cape is operable).

* Exchange laughter, go on peaceful walks, play a game of cards, sit and enjoy beautiful music, listen, offer respite to the tired caregiver, offer to help with household chores, etc.

* Your presence as a valued guest to those we are fortunate to serve can easily be arranged around your busy schedule! Volunteers are asked to serve 1-2 hours a week and report their visitations within a 24 hour period.

Hospice Companion

* Share memories at the Horizon Hospice In-Patient Unit in Mequon (located on the second floor of Columbia St. Mary's Hospital, Ozaukee). Volunteers serve a consistent weekday schedule of 2 - 4 hours a week.

* Assist nurses with direct patient cares (i.e. feeding, repositioning and/or transporting patients in wheelchairs), exchange laughter, sit and enjoy beautiful music, listen, offer respite to the tired caregiver, etc.

* Hospice Companions also make sure that there is fresh coffee, pastries, and flowers in the unit. They take care of the important details that help to make our patients and families feel like home.

We encourage you to listen to a lifetime of memories while creating lasting memories of your own. Also, PLEASE LEAVE A PHONE NUMBER THAT WE CAN BEST REACH YOU AT!
