Volunteers are needed to provide companionship visits for clients on Hospice care. Visits will be located in various settings such as Nursing Homes, Rehabilitations, Assisted Livings, and home settings. Volunteers will agree to visit a client weekly for an hour a week. Companionship visits could consist of reading together, sitting outside in good weather, listening to music, reminiscing together, singing, praying......and much, much more. We are always looking for new ideas and activities that YOU can bring to our clients. We are looking for caring people with warm hearts to assist our patients in preparing for end of life. We would love to hear from you!
Please know volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
