Needing volunteers to be involved with our terminally ill patients, that might just need a little more attention from a friendly person who wants to specifically visit them.

We want to offer whatever you have to provide. We cannot take a patient physically for a drive or to the store, but running errands is not out of the question. We would rather have you visit and get them involved with you and others, some have roommates, some do not, and some have no family. so being alone can be lonely.

If you have a craft idea or just want to sit and talk about their lives and what they have done, we can record that information for their family that is yet to come or live far away. Some times it is talking about experiences and travels, playing games, watching TV, or helping them go to an activity.

Your involvement is a blessing and sometimes you do not know just how much you can offer to those that have no visitors. I would like to meet you and discuss opportunities.
