About

As we expand our hospice services further south, we are looking for compassionate volunteers willing to visit with our terminally ill patients either in their home or in a nursing facility in areas near: Oakville, Mehlville, Lemay, Affton, Crestwood, Sunset Hills, St. Louis Hills, Kirkwood, Bella Villa, St George, Webster Groves, Green Park, and Fenton. Volunteers are needed to offer direct support to patients and sometimes respite help so caregivers can run errands. Volunteers do not administer medications or perform any nursing duties. You will receive specialized training conducted by Crossroads staff.

For more information call Sharon Christopher, Volunteer Manager, at 636-735-2000 or email sharon.christopher@crossroadshospice.com.
