Beacon Hospice provides quality end-of-life care to local terminally-ill patients. We are looking for caring and compassionate individuals in your area to spend time with our patients from a volunteer. Volunteers can provide much needed support to patients and their families in a number of ways including:

  • visiting with patients on an ongoing basis
  • sitting vigils
  • knitting, crocheting, quilting blankets
  • creating memory posters
  • providing music therapy
  • reiki
  • pet therapy
  • veterans visiting veterans
  • assisting in veteran pinning ceremonies

There is a free training course that is required on what hospice is and how to interact with hospice patients. The trainings are held locally. For more information, interested volunteers should contact Helena Nogueira Volunteer Coordinator at {860) 282-0527 or Helena.Nogueira@amedisys.com
