Volunteering

Preferred Hospice of Ozark, Missouri has patients that are currently residing in local long term care facilities that are in need of companionship and support through cards, letters, and other means of well wishes. While visitors are not permitted in the facilities, patients still love to receive cards and letters of well wishes and kind words. If you are interested, please contact me today so we can discuss this opportunity further. Volunteers will need to be from the surrounding Springfield and Ozark, MO area. We have a short application process and training and following completion of that, you will be free to volunteer in the comfort and safety of your own home. I can meet you where it is most convenient for you. I would love to hear from you! Please email Christie Brown Volunteer Coordinator at cbrown.oz@preferredhospice.com or call 417-581-4968.
