My name is Jean and I live in Wordsworth. I am the manager of a local
Hospice in Norfolk and we are in need of volunteers to help our families and
patients by being a volunteer to go visit with them, read to patients, or
just give the caregiver a short break to rest. Some of our past volunteers
have done music therapy, dog therapy, yard work or minor household repairs
for families as well as respite care mentioned above. Our area covers
Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Portsmouth and Suffolk.
The Signature area has many over 55's that might be interested in doing this
valuable, worthwhile work. How could we best get our information and need
for volunteers to them? Our patients and families are going through one
of the most difficult time periods of their lives and volunteers can make a
significant difference in this process.
Thank you for your help.
