About

Halcyon Hospice & Palliative Care is a nonprofit in-home hospice looking for volunteers interested in spending quality time with our patients.

Volunteers provide companionship and socialization for our patients that are lonely and in need of a friend. Volunteers can spend time with patients in a variety of ways: reading out loud, going for walks, watching favorite TV shows/movies together, assisting patients with their favorite activities, providing music at bedside, or just having coffee and chatting. Volunteers can even assist family members with errands and minor tasks around the house to ease stress. This is a great opportunity to improve someone's day and give back to your community!
