As one of our team members your role is one of service
and providing companionship and support. You can touch
people’s lives just by being you. Your time is an invaluable
gift to those we serve, their caregivers, and our staff.

Our volunteers’ goal is to provide companionship to our patients.
One of the greatest gifts you can give to another is your time.
Below are some examples of what this would look like…

Be present • Provide a listening ear • Tell a story • Sing
Read a book • Play cards • Help record the patient's life / write letters
Take the patient for a walk • Provide respite for the caregiver
Lead an activity in a facility • Pet Therapy • Assist in the office
11th-hour volunteers - sit with (at a bedside) a patient who is actively dying.
The biggest thing our volunteers can do is, be a friend.
