Patients who are nearing end of life have a variety of needs that can be met by volunteers. Some patients have little or no support and are in need of volunteer visits which can include reading, journalling, helping with hobbies, relieving family members and friends. Volunteers must be at least 18, helping 1 – 2 hours per week. Thorough training is provided. There are patients near your town who are awaiting volunteer assistance.
