    We are looking for caring, compassionate people who would like to help our hospice patients and their families.  

    Some ways you can help:

    • Visitations
    • Small errands 
    • Reading
    • Crafting projects
    • Just be a shoulder to lean on
    • Help with fundraising activities
    • Office work
    • Pet therapy
    • Legacy Program (where a volunteer writer interviews the patient and then records their life story for the patient's family)
    • 11th Hour Vigil

    Training is available for those who like to work with people or for those who have special skills to share.
