ORGANIZATION: Comfort Hospice of Houston

Comfort Hospice

Comfort Hospice is seeking volunteers to visit with patients during their final journey through life.
If you are a good listener or enjoy reading, writing, computers, watching TV programs or simply holding the hand of someone that needs a friend please consider becoming a hospice volunteer.
This opportunity is for a small family near Clinton Park in Houston. The volunteer matched to this household is expected to provide caregiver relief. This means accompanying the patient while the caregiver runs errands or visits the doctor. If you are skilled at light landscaping (planting, weeding, mowing, then that is an added bonus but not mandatory.)

A volunteer can make a big difference to someone that could use a friend.

If you think you could see yourself in this type of service please contact me at 832-786-4216 for more information.
