Do you enjoy visiting with other people? Kind people like you are needed to provide companionship to hospice patients, many of whom are veterans. Our companions visit patients and families and offer emotional support to veterans as part of our hospice team. Visiting may involve talking with patients and families, reading to patients, or participating in activities with them. Visiting times are flexible and are individualized to our patients and volunteer’s schedules. Training is provided as well as ongoing support from our dedicated hospice team! Please respond to this listing if you are interested or are seeking additional information.
