Want to take some time to do things for other people? This might be the opportunity you have been looking for. We work with patients that have a desire to have their own personal friend visit with them once or twice a week and spend time just with them.

You can read to them, watch TV with them, take a walk and visit some activities, share tea or coffee, work a puzzle, learn about their wonderful live, and just about anything else you might think they can do.

We seek 18 or older to work with patients, you would need to take a TB test, drug screening and a background check, all at no cost to you. We can meet for coffee or a soda once you have completed the application, and we will then start orientation and training you for working with our wonderful patients.

I am looking forward to meeting some new people that want to give back to others.
