Volunteers are needed in your area to visit our patients in their own homes offering them companionship and to give caregivers that much needed break for a few hours a week from caregiving. Volunteers give NO hands on care but are a presence in the home to be sure the patient is safe while the caregiver is away. Sometimes patient's live alone and a Volunteer is essential to the patients' well being! Volunteers are given 20 hours of training and never go alone to their patients for the first time. They may read to a patient, watch t.v. with them so just sit and talk as patient's does a life review. It is an excellent way to make a difference in someones life!
