Please visit the new page to apply.
Do you have about an hour a week to be a friend to someone with a terminal diagnosis? Many hospice patients have outlived their family and friends or have very little support at the end of their life.
Did you see the story on FB about the 90-year-old woman who left a note asking her neighbor to be her friend? It was heart wrenching to me. Her note said:
"...Would you consider becoming my friend? I am 90 years old - live alone and all my friends have passed away. I am so lonesome and scared."
Another story that touched my heart: "I'm alone, I can look at photos of my family and memories I brought from home. And that's all. I have nobody left."
We can change that! We can be the friend, the visitor they long to have. There is no greater gift than the gift of presence.
We offer training and then assign you a patient. Most of our volunteers visit their patient once a week for about an hour. Volunteers visit, read, play games, play music, etc. No hands-on care, just be a friend. If you are interested, please email to hold a spot in our next training. Our primary criteria is that you have a heart to serve others.
I look forward to serving this precious population with you.
