About

Often our seniors and their loved ones feel overwhelming sadness and isolation due to health problems and care-giving responsibilities.

Friendly visits are essential in reminding our patients they are not alone and never forgotten. Your gift of time and presence is a gift to our patients and their loved ones,

Whether it is journaling, porch sitting, sharing a cup of coffee or a meal, catching up on family news & current events, enjoying music, or simply a loving and listening presence, you can make a difference in the hearts of all.

Many visits can be consumed in simply listening, learning, and capturing the patient's life-story as a legacy gift to their loved ones. It is a treasure and a meaningful experience for both our volunteers and our patients.

Training and one to one assistance is provided throughout your volunteer experience.

We match families to volunteers based on the most convenient location and time for your busy schedule.

Bring your interests & hobbies and we will provide craft, music, reading, or journaling tools of your choice. Whatever you need!
