Exercise Your Hospice Heart Today!

About

APEX Hospice and Palliative Care is looking for motivated, compassionate individuals to spend time with patients, assist in the hospice office, or reach out to families grieving from the recent loss of a loved one. We have patients living in both residential homes and skilled nursing facilities that welcome the opportunity for non-medical companionship - volunteers to spend time reading to them, talking with them, participating in activities, or just sitting and watching television with them.

Additionally, we need individuals to answer phones, create facility binders and family packets and work in the office to aid in efficient care of our patients.

Volunteers may be interested in reaching out to families after their loved one has passed, to provide comfort in their time of grief.

We Honor Veteran Volunteers participate in military pinning ceremonies, or visit with veteran patients and families.

Love On Leashes Pet Team is a popular option for volunteers with dogs certified in Animal Assisted Activities.

Exercise your heart by making a difference in the life of a hospice patient. Somebody needs you....won't you help?
