About

At Horizon Home Care and Hospice, we believe in bringing comfort, care, and dignity to all of our hospice patients. We are seeking caring and compassionate people who want to make a difference in the lives of hospice patients. We will provide you engaging, empowering training to prepare you to serve in one of the following ways:

* 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).


* Assist nurses with direct patient cares, exchange laughter, go on peaceful walks, play a game of cards, sit and enjoy beautiful music, listen, offer respite to the tired caregiver, or offer to help with household chores, etc.


* Your schedule can easily be arranged around your busy life! Volunteers are asked to serve 1-2 hours a week.

* At the in-patient unit 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.
