Preferred Hospice Ozark, MO

Volunteering

Many of Preferred Hospice's patients that live in their homes, are homebound and unable to have family and friends visit them. Many caretakers are in need of short respites or breaks to take care of their own needs. If you would be interested in visiting with these families and providing companionship to them, please contact me today. We have a short interview, application, and orientation process and I can meet you where it is most convenient for you. Please contact Christie Brown, Volunteer Coordinator, at Preferred Hospice. Call 417-581-4968. You can also email me at cbrown.oz@preferredhospice.com I look forward to hearing from you. We reimburse gas mileage! Preferred Hospice of Ozark Missouri serves patients within an hour radius of our office. Volunteers should be from the area.
