Gerinet Healthcare needs caring, dependable and committed individuals to volunteer a few hours a week to bring a little bit of the outside world into our patients homes.

Most of out terminally ill patients are bed or home bound and cannot go out and partake in the activities that they used to enjoy when they were out and about. Our Patient and Family Services volunteers play a key role in bringing the outside world to them and to make it a happy place for them again. From beaches, to car shows. From lakes to malls, our volunteers use their imaginations and creativity to bring the experience to our patients' homes.

Ways to help include: making friendly visits to listen, hold a hand, play cards, watch a favorite video, read a book, sing or play music. Bring art supplies to paint or draw with our artistic patients. Bring photos of places that our patients loved to go to on their vacations.

Free training is provided. Following training, volunteers are placed with patients as close to the volunteer's home as possible.

Please contact Manuela Elsayan, Volunteer Coordinator, at melsayan@healthessentials.com or 818-559-1550

We can't wait to meet you!
