We are looking for new volunteers to use their interviewing and recording/editing skills to record our hospice patients as they share their life story.

We want our patients to leave behind a story, message or anything else they choose for their families to treasure. In addition, video recordings can be used to record family members and loved ones of the patient. This can be very helpful, especially if the patient is unable to communicate or share stories. For example, if a patient is in the late stages of dementia and is unable to communicate verbally; family and friends can be recorded sharing special stories and memories of the person.

You will be recording, editing and saving this on a DVD or memory stick. Imagine the thrill of a family member being able to hear their grandparent's story in their own words after they have passed away.

The scheduling is flexible and training is provided. You just need to be 18 or over. And we do ask that volunteers commit to 6 months.

Contact Yvette Williams, Volunteer Manager at yvette.williams@silverado.com or 888.328.4558 to learn more.
