Noone should die alone. We are looking for volunteers to sit with patients in their last days of life. The goal of this volunteer is to offer companionship for a patient or to support the family members during this time. The service is provided as needed and volunteers will be on call, however the hours will be 8 am to 9 pm. Volunteers will be trained for this specialized opportunity and must be flexible.
