Ways to help

Creative Expression

Everyone has a special talent — quilting, writing poetry, cooking — and a special way of bringing comfort to those in need. Residential Hospice patients and families are especially touched when volunteers share these meaningful gifts at such a critical point in their lives.

Respite Care and Support

Our volunteers provide comfort and support in many ways, including relieving primary caregivers from their daily routines. They can further support the family with shopping, cooking and light housekeeping, yard work, running errands — even lending a much-appreciated ear to family members who just need someone to listen.
