Granddad Needs a Visitor

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 5 people are interested

Granddad needs a kind- hearted visitor at his residence because his family is working!

Folks who are homebound tend to get very lonely and often feel like the world has forgotten about them. We have Hospice patients who fit into this sad situation. It's not that their family doesn't care about them. Quite often, the family members work full time, and have families to support, which makes it very difficult to visit their loved one as much as they would like. For this very reason, Hospice regulations are in place which provide for volunteer visitors to help fill this need!

Just a few visits per month of at least 30 minutes can make a big difference in the lives of our Granddads in Hospice. Won't you please consider this wonderful opportunity to bring a smile, and companionship to Granddad?

Training is provided so that you will feel comfortable in providing support to the patient. A two-step TB screening is required at no cost to you. A background check must be done according to State law, and a drug screening.

Please contact me if you believe that this wonderful opportunity is right for you! Ministering to a lonely Hospice patient is an extremely rewarding experience. You will love this Volunteer Opportunity.
