Make a difference in the lives of the terminally ill, by becoming a hospice companion volunteer with Pacific Point Health Care Services. Terminally ill patients need companion visits from caring members of their community. Visits can vary from simply chatting and storytelling, reading aloud, playing board games, or celebrating their birthday. So many ways to make a big impact on their lives. No prior experience is necessary, just a desire to help someone in need. We provide the training and support, so you'll feel comfortable and prepared. Can't wait to hear from you.
