nursing facilities and/or assisted living facilities, at least once a week. They read to the patient, reminisce about their lives, play cards, help with letter writing and provide respite for caregivers. Visits can also be virtual and are during the day or early evening.

Patient care volunteers complete an application and attend a virtual volunteer training
program. To sign up for the next virtual training class, contact Deborah
