WE ARE SEEKING FRIENDLY VOLUNTEERS TO PROVIDE COMPASSION AND SOCIALIZATION TO OUR HOSPICE PATIENTS AND THEIR FAMILY IN THEIR HOME, NURSING HOME OR ASSISTED LIVING FACILITIES.

Volunteers can read, scribe, play games, cards, chat, solve puzzles, watch tv, host Bible study, listen to music, play instruments, sing to our patients and be a listening ear. Volunteers can assist with organizing and decorating the patient space while hearing many of the patient wonderful life stories. Most importantly volunteers will "be there" to make difference and be supportive.

What a wonderful gift you could give to someone who is in an 'end of life journey' than your presence.
Our patients are so warmly moved by the company of a 'volunteer' who wants to spend time with them and their family.

We are very flexible with working around your schedule and We will keep you within the area and distance you feel is most convenient. We ask that you commit to a minimum of 1 hour a week.

Please contact us for more details and be sure to provide your phone number.
I look forward to you joining our Volunteer family!
