The end of life can be a scary and difficult situation for most. As a volunteer, you can provide patients with the support and love they may be missing and help them along the journey. Giving your time and attention to an individual who is at the end of their life, can not only benefit the individual, but can also benefit you!

Come make a difference!

Serve as an additional support to patients and families dealing with a terminal illness and end-of-life issues. Support is provided in a variety of ways, including the provision of companionship and socialization to patients, or offering respite to stressed caregivers. Some other support a volunteer can provide is singing to patients, playing musical instruments, doing art with patients, poetry, reading, etc.
