Visiting Volunteer Program
Professionally trained and supported volunteers offer non-medical services to individuals diagnosed with life-threatening illness and their families, in their homes. Volunteers provide companionship, practical support and short-term relief for caregivers. Visiting Volunteers can help with day-to-day needs such as appointments, shopping, outings, and legacy work.
In a safe environment there is an opportunity for social interaction and activities that illness can often restrict. The program offers respite for caregivers while providing peer support, a variety of life-affirming and fun activities for individuals. Activities may include massage, relaxation exercises, music, crafts, creative writing - and always a great lunch.
These programs offer education and support for both family and friends coping with the loss or illness of a loved one. The program offers a variety of formats, including but not limited to:
Open to anyone caring for a loved one with a life-threatening illness.
