Unity Hospice is looking for volunteers to visit patients in skilled nursing homes or in their own homes. Patients love the social contact and look forward to being read to, playing games, hearing music, prayer, and just being acknowledged. Also, if you have any special talent that you would like to share (i.e. music, massage, pet therapy or for speakers bureau), they would love to work with you. You can visit as often or as little as you are able. This is a perfect opportunity if you have a very busy schedule and need to be very flexible as a volunteer. Patient visitation is very flexible since most of the patients are located in the nursing home in Rochelle, IL. Volunteers will also have opportunities available on the surrounding communities. Please call Nancy Ramos at 866-568-6489 for more information.
