About

Patients may not be able to speak or communicate as they used to, dealing with their journey to the end of life. Sometimes just hearing a kind voice can help make their day a little brighter. Volunteer fills the gap between loved ones and professional caregivers. Volunteers will be there even when friends and family find it hard to do so. Volunteers don’t have the emotional attachment family does. They are trained to meet the needs of patients and families. They visit on a schedule, yet are open to change as dictated by the patient’s health and interests. They are unpaid, yet priceless.
