- Vigil Volunteers-- offer your comfort and presence to the patient and family during the last hours of life.
- Bereavement Phone Call Volunteers-- we keep in touch with the family at specific intervals after their loved one has died. Make the phone calls that offer comfort and support.
- Namaste-- a specialized program for our dementia patients that uses light touch and sensory stimulation.
- Music Companion and Spiritual Companion Volunteers-- do you have a muscial talent or a skill for offering spiritual comfort to people? You can share that with patients and families.
- Circle of Care Volunteers-- volunteer for 2 hours a week, on Thursday evenings, by making phone calls to a group of patients to "tuck them in" for the weekend and assuring they have the supplies, medications, and support they need!
