What do you live to do? Playing games? Reminiscing? Gardening? We invite you to share your passion with our patients. Our Companion Volunteers provide socialization and companionship to our patients, their families, and their caregivers. Companion Volunteers assist patients and families with tasks such as sitting with the patient, running errands, light housework, or yard work, reading to the patient, and sharing your passions.

Companion volunteers are members of our patient’s local community. This relationship provides a feeling of normality for patients, as well as patients’ families and friends. Volunteers often connect with patients on a deep, personal level, which provides the hospice care team with valuable insights concerning the overall impact of the level of comfort and care that is provided.
