Visit weekly with assigned hosice patient(s) and document activity. Volunteers can read to patients, sing songs, reminsce, visit, take a walk if patient is capable, maybe push a wheelchair for a nature walk, help write letters for loved ones, etc. The possiblities are endless. The activity depends on patients need/desire and ability.
Some patients are in their own homes, others are in Assisted Living facilities or Nursing homes. Most patients are over 50 years old. Some have dementia but others are very cognitive and converse well.
We serve patients from Mountain Home and West to Oregon border and surrounding areas and North to Weiser area. We also serve the Ontario, Oregon area. Volunteers are matched to patients in their local area and with patients with like interests.
