Image_201912031200

Do you have time to talk to a patient or a family member? We have learned that sometimes a phone call is all it takes. Some of our patients don't really need a visit, but they would like to talk to someone and hear a happy voice. This is an easy way to help, right in the comfort of your home. If you're interested in making a call to check on a patient or the patient caregiver, please let us know we would love your help. We look forward to meeting you!

ALL volunteers must:

  • complete a volunteer application & training
  • pass a background check
  • have a valid driver’s license

If you are interested, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Sarah Cooley.
