Hold a hand and make a difference.

Our volunteers offer terminally ill patients and their families comfort, support, and companionship during a patient’s most challenging days, weeks, and months. Our volunteers report they are motivated by a desire to give something back, but soon find that the spiritual and emotional rewards they receive far outweigh the time and caring they contribute.

Volunteer Opportunities

Patient Care - providing emotional support and practical assistance that enhance the comfort and quality of life for patients/families/caregivers. These services include being available for companionship, listening, quiet company, and preparing meals.

Respite Assistance - volunteers may offer their services to sit with a patient or simply be a presence in the home while providing family members or caregivers a break from patient care. Family members or caregivers may choose to leave home or take a much-needed nap. Respite volunteers provide both the patient and the caregiver with the knowledge that someone else is in the home and the patient is not alone.

11th Hour - spend time at the bedside while a patient is "actively dying" ensuring that no one dies alone. (special training provided)
