Needing volunteers that are eager to spend time with someone that needs a friend. Our patients are amazing and have so much to share with others. The stories of their lives are fascinating and can make you appreciate the time they still have to share with others.

Some would like to play a game, make a puzzle, go for a walk, eat popcorn and watch a movie, have tea or coffee with someone, there are endless opportunities to be that special person. So, if you feel that you might be that special someone, let me know, I will welcome the opportunity to have you as part of our team.

Application, Orientation, training, PPE kit given and trained on how to use it. We do not require CPR classes to volunteer with Hospice Plus. I will take you to coffee or a soda for an interview and meet you close to your home.
