YOU can make a difference in the life of someone at a very difficult time in his or her life!
How can you make that happen?

  • Offer companionship and share a few hours of your time each month;
  • Offer a smile, a hug, a kind word;
  • Listen;
  • Reminisce;
  • Be a presence for someone who is lonely;
  • Sit with a patient to give a weary caregiver a much needed break;
  • Run errands for someone who can no longer leave home;
  • Read or provide music (instrument, singing, or cell phone!);
  • Share your certified/trained best friend (dog, cat, bunny, miniature horse!) and see a face light up immediately!
Hospice volunteers make an AMAZING difference! And, serving with us provides volunteers with the self-satisfaction that they are part of a team who's goal is to provide patients, caregivers and families with the most comfortable and compassionate end-of-life experience possible.

Needs exist today - in your community - and we would welcome the opportunity to talk more with you about how to get connected!
