Hospice Volunteer Visitors offer support to people facing the end of life. They’re understanding listeners who also make it possible for a caregiver to take a few hours of respite.
Anyone who feels moved to apply is welcome! We’re also looking for bilingual volunteers, massage therapists, pet companion visitors and veterans wanting to serve other military veterans.
