About

Compassionate Care Hospice is seeking volunteers who love music and love to play and/or sing. Our hospice patients in facilities love music and having people visit. You can play/sing in a group setting or individually.

Music is an important part of visiting the terminally ill. Singing and hearing music often brings back fond memories, provides a release of emotions, and fills the empty hours that a person might otherwise spend alone.

Compassionate Care training will be provided and adapted to your schedule and location. Screening and background clearances are required and paid for by us.

We ask for at least a six month commitment and the volunteer time is a minimum of 1-3 hours a month. Come join our great community of volunteers and bring your musical talents to be a part of a wonderful outreach right in your neighborhood
