Ways Volunteers Support Our Work

Direct Care Volunteers

Learn to provide companionship and emotional support to patients and families.  Like a friendly neighbor, Volunteer Visitors or Direct Care Volunteers help take care of practical tasks or simply extend a hand to hold. 

Volunteer Visitors may run errands, help prepare a meal, read to a patient, offer light massage or just share some quiet time. 

Their presence can make it possible for a caregiver to take a needed break for a few hours.

Direct Care Volunteers are required to complete a 16 hour training. All volunteers must complete 12 hours of annual training.
