With over 25-years of proud service and commitment to the community, Haven Hospice provides a special type of care to those suffering from a life-limiting illness. We are in need of friendly visitors to visit patients who reside in their own homes and in partner facilities in Somerset County. Friendly visitors, at least 18 years old, provide companionship, socialization, and caregiver relief. Visits are typically 1-2 hours, once a week, and are based on your schedule. Haven Hospice asks for a minimum of 1 year's commitment. Of special need are those with specialized skills/experience such as Pet Therapists, Reiki Practitioners, Eucharistic Ministers, Beauticians, Musicians, Veterans, and those who speak another language.

Volunteers are provided a thorough orientation free of charge. For more information, contact Elaine.Carlsen@HMHN.org for more information.
