Unity Hospice needs volunteers
Unity Hospice of Western Illinois in Rochelle is in need of volunteers in this area: someone with a desire to help those in need. Unity Hospice has several patients in Rockford that are in need of someone to visit them and let them know they are not alone. There are many different ways to help.
You can sit and talk or just sit and listen about things in their lives that you may have in common. Maybe you can share the enjoyment of music together, a hobby, or family experiences. Perhaps the patient would enjoy someone to read to them. There is much joy and fulfillment in seeing the smile on the face of someone so happy to see you.
It doesnt take a lot of time, and the rewards far outweigh the sacrifice of time spent. For more information about the Volunteer Program and the orientation schedule, call Pat Dradi at Unity Hospice of Western Illinois, (815) 561-8866, between 8 a.m. and 4:30 p.m.
