Seeking Licensed Cosmetologists to Provide Dignity & Comfort for Hospice
2 people are interested
We are looking for volunteers to expand our Pampering with Distinction program, which provides gentle hair &/or nail care to patients with life-limiting illness (and their caregivers).
Your visits will be profound, meaningful and appreciated in an exceptional way. Comfort, compassion and quality of life are key aims of hospice care, and being pampered can restore dignity, provide comfort and reinvigorate feelings of "human-ness."
Visit with our clients in the comfort of their own homes (or residential facilities) in any of the five boroughs of NYC - volunteer’s choice!
You can bring an extraordinarily special gift with your skills, talent and presence, and we are eager to hear from you. Even if you are not sure or have questions, please reach out to us so we can discuss if this might be a good fit for you. The impact and rewards of your service will be substantial.
