Help a patient or family in your community! We are looking for compassionate and caring people who are looking to visit with our hospice patients. A visit can comprise of holding a hand, reading a book, completing a life story, reminiscing, or providing comfort to the patient, etc
The patients are mostly in nursing homes or their own homes. You can visit patients close to your home with free parking and mileage reimbursement. Also, the time commitment is flexible - we work with and respect your schedule.
Each assignment has its own rules and regulations regarding Covid 19 that all volunteers must follow.
Training is provided- we do require background checks, 2 step TB tests, CPR certification, and you must have your own transportation or you can visit patients on the busline.
Make memories that last a lifetime!!
