Everything but the doctor.

VOLUNTEERS HAVE MANY FACES

Volunteerism is an essential part of New Milford Visiting Nurse & Hospice.

HOSPICE AND CARE OF THE SICK VOLUNTEER
Our volunteers provide companionship, respite for caregivers, and lend a hand with practical needs. Volunteer assistance may include:

  • engaging in conversation; listening
  • preparing a meal; shopping
  • reading aloud books or newspapers
  • playing cards, games, or sitting in quiet companionship
  • basic in-home pet care such as dog walking, grooming, litter box changing
  • PAWS for PATIENTS. Bring your certified pet therapy dog for patients who request a visit.

ADMINISTRATIVE VOLUNTEER
Volunteers provide valuable help with administrative tasks, such as data entry, filing, writing thank you notes to donors and other tasks as needed.

EVENT VOLUNTEERS
Volunteers are crucial to the success of fundraising events and community education programs throughout the year. Contact our Event Manager, Deb Matta for details.
