A little about Volunteers:

  • No medical experience needed
  • Must be reliable
  • Have an open heart!
  • Need to have reliable transportation
  • Pick their own schedule
  • "Friendly visitors." that do not have an agenda. They are simply there to visit, be a friend, help a patient "forget" for a moment and just truly enjoy life.
  • Give caregivers a break for a couple of hours. This is so the caregiver can attend to their own needs such as going to a doctor’s appointment or going to the grocery.
  • A few of the activities Volunteers have done during visits are: go for a walk, sit with someone and encourage them to eat, attend an activity, make someone's day not so long and lonely, dance, sing, read a bible out loud, paint fingernails, listen to stories about traveling, and share a Hersey's candy bar.

If this sounds like something you would be interested in, or if you have more questions about Hospice - let me know. Please include your name and phone number. Have a great day......I look forward to hearing from you! Katrina Wilson, VC
