About

  • Reading to a patient, or holding a hand
  • Staying with a patient while family members take a needed break or keep an appointment
  • Shopping or doing errands for a patient
  • Helping patients write or tell life stories
  • Light household chores
  • Providing help with makeup and hair
  • Veterans needed to honor Veteran patients at bedside/share stories together
  • animal therapy
  • Music therapy
  • Working on crafts or other projects
  • Photography (family photo) "photos of love"
  • Clerical and other office duties
While our patients are catagorized as terminal, many of our patients simply live at home and need help with errands or would benefit from your love and companionship. I will NEVER assign a volunteer to a patient who is actively passing. I know that is what most people visualize when I say hospice volunteer. That is not the case. I would love to offer you the opportunity to experience the amazing feeling of making a difference in a patient and family's life. The family you may be able to help could be someone you already know and love in your community. You won't know, unless you become one of our highly trained, compassionate volunteers. Apply today!

Respectfully Yours,

Laura Cassidy
