Hospice Community Care, a part of your community for well over ten years, is in need of volunteers to provide friendly visits for our terminally-ill patients. Hospice Community Care's mission is to provide dignified end-of-life care and quality services that allow our patients and their families or significant others to live life richly, deeply and meaningfully for as long as it may last, and to die with dignity in the setting of their choice.

Our patients are located throughout the Richmond area in places such as: Lakeside, Glen Allen, Chesterfield, Hopewell, Short Pump, City of Richmond, Chester and North Chesterfield.

As a Friendly Visitor Volunteer with Hospice Community Care you would facilitate this mission by spending quality time with a patient on a weekly or monthly basis. Friendly Visitor Volunteers visit the patient in whatever setting the patient calls home, i.e., a nursing home, assisted living facility, a retirement community or a private residence. During the visit, the patient may want the Friendly Visitor Volunteer to read to them, play cards or checkers, write letters or simply hold hands to provide comfort for the patient. Friendly Visitor Volunteers provide an extremely valuable service for our patients.

All volunteers must undergo training, pass a background check and a TB test. Does this sound like a volunteer opportunity that interests you? Call our office at 1-800-409-9094 and speak with our Volunteer Coordinator, Cynthia Anderson or simply reply to this Volunteer Match ad. We have many patients who are experiencing loneliness and sadness due to their illness and would enjoy a visit from someone like you to brighten their day.

You must be 18 years of age to participate.
