WesleyLife Hospice is looking for individuals to share their love of music with our patients. You will be able to work alongside our Board Certified Music Therapist to provide the gift of music. We would love to add music volunteers to our team to make weekly visits to our patients and to provide music at one time events and Veteran Pinning Ceremonies.

Our Board Certified Music Therapist will provide guidance on music selection for our Veteran Pinning Ceremonies as well as an on needed basis. Hospice training will be also provided.

Preferred skills we are currently looking for are vocalists, pianists, and guitarist.

This is what one of our volunteers shares about what it means to volunteer for WesleyLife Hospice: "Being a volunteer for WesleyLife Hospice means the world to me. I have personally been through hospice with multiple family members, and being a volunteer for hospice now means I can make the experience pleasing for others. To know you are helping someone and comforting them makes me feel very happy to be a volunteer. The best part of being a volunteer is being there for someone who might not have anyone, and letting them know they are not alone. The connections I have made through volunteering are some that I will cherish and be thankful for." - Lindsey
