About

Join the growing team of Caring Hospice Patient Visit Volunteers who share precious time and comfort with patients, providing companionship and a social outlet in their homes, which may be in an Assisted Living or Skilled Nursing Facility. They bring smiles to the patients and their family members as they interact with them in an activity they enjoy such as reading, watching a movie or ball game, taking a walk or engaging in conversation. Do you have some time to share with a dying patient? Speak another language? Our patients smile even wider as you converse with them in their first language!
