We are looking for those who are interested in working with hospice patients. These patients are terminally ill. We are looking for someone who would like to spend time with our patients. This type of volunteering may include reading to the patients, watching movies, playing games, and just spending time with them/companionship. Volunteers do not provide medical care, but act as emotional and extended support system.

Thank you for considering volunteering and choosing Meridian Healthcare. We appreciate our volunteers. We look forward to meeting you soon.

If you are interested in volunteering please contact Lindsey Freling, Medical Social Worker, MSW, LSW at l.freling.MPHC@gmail.com.
