As a Companion Volunteer you will visit patients in local nursing communities or their home and spend quality time with them playing cards/games, watching TV, reading, listening to music or simply by being there. No direct physical care required. We are asking our Volunteers during this time of COVID-19 restrictions to think outside the box when in person visits are not possible! Be creative become a pen pal or virtual visits we encourage imagination.
