Do you have a talent to share? Aromatherapy, Arts and Crafts, Pet Therapy, playing music, Reiki, Scrapbooking?

A contagious passion for just about anything?

Would you like an appreciative audience?

Want an easy way to make a big impact in someone's life?

Join our team of upbeat, big-hearted people who are dedicated to bringing peace to those with terminal illnesses.

Now that Covid19 is part of our lives, we are reaching out to our patients and families from a distance as well as one-on-one under safe circumstances. Distance volunteering options will continue to be available to our volunteers, even if Covid19 is no longer a concern.

Our volunteers are welcomed as respected members of the care team, whether they have a desire to help from a distance, or (when we are no longer in "pandemic mode") in the office, walk a patient's dog, garden, help patients write letters, sing/read to them, or just offer a friendly ear. Whether they work "up close and personal", or prefer to stay behind the scenes, we are happy to work around our volunteers' schedules.

Currently, training is done via Zoom. Training is informative, easy, and fun. It is designed to give volunteers the tools to be confident and comfortable working with our patients.

Having the gift of foresight that the end of their life is near, many people can finally make sense of their life story. Peace can be made with people and circumstances that have had a profound impact on individuals. Many who are in the process of dying have a unique perspective on what it means to be alive. We want to help them find meaning in every moment that they still have. We take our mission seriously, but we also have fun while partnering with our patients on their journey.

As your volunteer coordinator, I look forward to helping you add a meaningful, rewarding facet to your life!
