Have you heard the story about the 90 year old woman from Austin who left a pleading note for her neighbor? 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 could just use someone to talk to."

There is no greater gift than the gift of presence. However, many hospice patients have outlived their family and friends or have very little support during their final days. All it takes is an hour or so to make a huge difference in a patient's outlook and quality of life.

Some hospice volunteer activities include:

  • Playing games
  • Reading books
  • Sharing stories
  • Painting nails
  • Bringing your pet
  • Playing guitar, piano, etc.
  • Providing bereavement support
  • Assisting with office needs (filing, envelope stuffing, folder making, phone calls, etc.)

No previous hospice experience required. Training is provided! Volunteers provide NO medical care, just friendship.

If you have any questions, please email Morgan at mskarin@magnoliahospice.com

Thank you for having the heart to serve others!
