Our clients and their families are always in need of volunteers to provide them with extra care. There are several roles that a volunteer can fulfill:
*Friendly Visitor Volunteers (spend time with patients providing comfort by sitting, talking, reading).
*Respite volunteers (allow caregivers of homebound patients to take a needed break).
*Vigil Volunteers (sit at bedside of dying patients).
