Avalon Hospice provides compassionate care to our patients as well as their caregivers. We currently have a need for volunteers to sit with patients while allowing their caregivers some repite time for doctor appointments, errands or just a needed break. This is such an important need for the mental health and well being of both patient and caregiver.
We are also looking for a volunteer who can provide a friendly smile, a comforting presence, a warm touch, a couple of hours to assist with errands or light housekeeping - all of these kind gestures will mean a lot to our hospice patients and their loved ones.
This is a great opportunity for medical and social service students to get some hands on experince in patient care.
