About

You will visit a patient in his or her home, a nursing facility, assisted living res idence. Often you will provide respite for the caregiver, along with social and emotional support for the patient. If the patient is able, during these visits you may share common bonds as hobbies and chats about places the patient holds dear. It could be a simple game of cards, watching a television show together or simply holding a patient's hand so that they know they are not alone. The stories and the situations are different every time a new patient and volunteer come together. As time goes on, we have seen our patients and volunteers become best friends and "adopt" each other.
