Homeside Hospice is looking for volunteers to provide companionship to hospice patients where they live in Somerset County. As a companion you will provide a listening ear and a sharing spirit to enhance the patient's emotional and spiritual well-being.
As a volunteer you will provide essential, quality of life services to patients. Your efforts will provide the sort of care and help that a loving friend provides and help insure that the Hospice promise is fulfilled.
Some visits might include reading, watching TV, taking walks, playing music, talking about their life and their family, or shared silence.
