We currently have hospice patients in the Newton/West Newton area who are looking for volunteers to come and visit them. This is an amazing opportunity to make a difference in someone's end of life experience. Potential activities with patients can include any of the following:
Reading to patients Talking/reminiscing Making crafts Attending activity groups in the facility Offering companionship Playing card/board games Playing music for patients

The gift of hospice is priceless, giving patients facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live ALL the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity, quality of life and time. We take the time to understand the unique needs of each of our patients and their loved ones. Our team of expert and compassionate hospice caregivers works to meet your needs, whether they are physical, emotional or spiritual. We work in close coordination with you, your family and your physician to deliver the best possible hospice care, and we are available to you around the clock.
Join the volunteers at Beacon Hospice and learn how to provide compassionate and dignified end-of-life care to patients with life-limiting illnesses and their families. The needs are simple--companionship and friendship, emotional support, and someone to listen. Administrative volunteer opportunities are also available.
