Allay's Compassionate Companions profoundly affect the quality of our patients' lives by helping those with a life-limiting illness make the very best of the time he or she has left. These volunteers bring comfort to patients and relief to their caregivers by offering a supportive presence, a listening ear and a helping hand.
When visiting, volunteers may offer to play music or a game, read to the patient. listen to his or her stories and memories, sit with a patient outside or take him or her for a walk, or offer assistance with other non-medical tasks, There are also times when volunteers may simply sit quietly while holding one's hand, letting the patient know that he or she is not alone.
Allay's Hospice Companions give the greatest gift of all - themselves!
