ORGANIZATION: Affinity Care of Virginia


Affinity Care of Virginia is a hospice organization looking for volunteers to provide companionship for patients in our care. Volunteers will visit with patients, play games, read to them, and attend facility activities with patients. Some individuals reside in their homes, these volunteer opportunities might look like sitting with a patient while their caregivers take a break or runs some errands. Volunteers will not be doing any direct care for patients and are serving solely in a companionship role.

Mission Statement

Affinity Health Management’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our skilled hospice team is dedicated to helping our patients and their families maintain their dignity and quality of life. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort for the patient and to provide tools, information and support for the patient’s family so that they feel confident in the crucial decisions that come along with terminal illnesses. We provide ongoing care and support for our patients and their families for as long as it is needed.


Considered to be the model for quality, compassionate care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury, hospice and palliative care involves a team-oriented approach to expert medical care and pain management. Emotional and spiritual support is expressly tailored to the patient’s needs and wishes, and support is provided for the patient’s loved ones as well. At the center of hospice and palliative care is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain-free and with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Hospice focuses on caring, not curing, and, in most cases, care is provided in the patient’s home. Hospice services are available to patients of any age, religion, race, or illness.

Our interdisciplinary hospice team performs many services. It helps manage the patient’s pain and symptoms with skilled nursing care, provides needed medication, medical supplies and equipment, home health aides, and coaches the family on how to care for the patient. It also assists the patient with social services to address the emotional, psychosocial and spiritual aspects of end of life needs.
