It's normal for patients to experience boredom, stress and loneliness while in the hospital. Volunteers in the Friend Program become a “friend” to our patients by offering a kind word or listening ear. They offer support by providing bedside conversation, playing cards and board games, reading books, newspapers and magazines or finding other ways to help pass the time. This program is offered to our patients seven days a week morning, afternoon and evening. It's perfect for a friendly, compassionate individual who enjoys one-on-one contact with patients.
Contact us if you'd like to be considered for our Friend Program.
