Help a patient and their family in your community! We are looking for compassionate and caring people who are looking to visit our hospice patients. A visit can compromise of holding a hand, reading a book, completing a life story, reminiscing, or providing comfort to the patient, etc.

The patients are either in a nursing home or their own homes. You can visit close to your home with free parking and mileage reimbursement. Our volunteers are important to our team and patients, so we will respect your schedule.

Training is provided- we do require background checks, TB tests, and you must have your transportation. Or if the patients are on a busline, you can visit via bus.

Make memories that last a lifetime!
