Volunteers needed for companionship for patients who are on hospice care. There is no limit to the ways your time could benefit a patient who is confined to their home. Volunteering time to sit and listen, read a book, do a little light housework, play musical instruments, read to the patient, watch TV with the patient, play board games, cards, Bingo, or just simply sit and look out the window are some of the ways your companionship could benefit the patient. There's a special kind of appreciation for people who give of their time!! Call the office 731.736.2046 any weekday from 8a-5pm to donate a little of your time.

We help the patient and family navigate the difficult landscape of end-of-life care. Ours is a body, mind and soul approach . We are here for them, when life matters the most.

Each patient is assigned an interdisciplinary team of caregivers, dedicated to helping patients and their families share time together in the warmth, comfort and privacy of their own homes.
