Be a Companion for a Hospice Patient
Be a companion to a Hospice patient, in their own home, apartment, or assisted living. Are you willing to read aloud, make a meal, hold a hand, help spruce up the home, play a game, write a letter, play cards, or just hold their hand? Then you are JUST who we've been waiting for! Spend a few hours a month to make someone's day, and help them live out their best last days.
