Patient volunteers provide emotional support by offering "friendly visitor services" to patients, their families and caregivers. Volunteers will read, play cards, listen to music, provide hand message to a patient or give relief to the caregiver.

Office volunteers provide clerical support in our office setting by answering telephones, preparing admission packets and filing patient documentation.
