Hold a hand, send a card, listen, read or sing. Make gifts for patients, perform light housekeeping or just sit and provide comfort. Our volunteers usually spend 1-3 hours with a patient. During this time they can read to patients, play games, write letters, assist with plant or pet care, talk about patient's life or just sit and keep them company. Any amount of time you can spare means the world to our patients and their families. Our volunteer coordinator will work with you to find your best fit. Gentiva provides training, drug and background check and TB testing. Call 803-645-9839 or email julia.conder@gentivahs.com today so we can get you started on making someone's life better.
