If you enjoy reading to others, our hospice patients welcome you! Reading to a hospice patient is a precious opportunity to interact and provide something that many patients are no longer able to do - pick up a book, magazine, or newspaper and read it. Be their hands and their eyes and share with them. YOU are needed. Let 2020 be the year that YOU make a difference in the life of a hospice patient.

Please contact us to learn more. We look forward to hearing from you soon!

NOTE: Volunteers must live in the service area - Memphis, TN and/or Southaven, MS - as these are in-office and in-person opportunities. Thank you!
