Visiting Terminally ill patients that still have the desire to visit with people and make a new friend. All visits are companionship only and require a smile and sometime some ingenious ideas of games, or things to do. Some facilities have Activities that the patient might engage in, some days they feel better than others. They just want a friendly face and someone to visit them.

We seek over 18 years old or a guardian that can supervise the visit. The facilities have rules and obligations, so we cannot compromise those rules. You must be able to provide your own transportation, and be obligated to visit at lease once a week. We are a Hospice organization, and require a frequency for all patients, as they go into a plan of care.

Please don't let the above information put you off, but legal things happen when you volunteer for patients. I will gladly explain all the rules we need to follow to you at an interview.
