Volunteers may provide direct patient and family assistance. These services include, but are not limited to:
- Sitting with patients
- Making phone calls
- Running errands for patients and/or caregivers
- Handy man/woman: Volunteers are sometimes needed to build a wheelchair ramp, tend a garden, or repair a handrail for a patient
*Volunteers interested in direct patient and family assistance are asked to complete a volunteer training course.
Administrative Volunteers can help with data entry, creating forms, and preparing documents. Some knowledge of computers is helpful, but not necessary. Volunteers are also needed to answer phones, file documents, operate the copy and fax machines, prepare handout packets, and keep the office running smoothly.
