About

Music is such an important part of an individual's life. The opporunity to listen and relax with an instrument being played at the beside can be a wonderful source of comfort. We are seeking guitarists, harpists, or any portable instrument players to provide music for our clients at their bedside.

A hospice patient is diagnosed with a terminal illness and it is at this point where helping hands are needed. A volunteer can add so much to a patient's quality of remaining life. Direct Patient volunteers serve both patients and families in assisted living facilities, nursing homes, or residential homes. Volunteers are assigned as close to their home, work, or school as possible. Volunteers are given choices of who they visit and where they go. We serve patients throughout Montgomery, Philadelphia, Bucks and Delaware Counties.

Volunteers receive initial training and continued support along the way so please know this is something you experience with a team of hospice professionals who are here to help YOU impact a life.

Please contact Kathy O'Connor, hospice volunteer coordinator for additional information at 215-371-1393.
