Visiting Nurse Needs Volunteers

Visiting Nurse, a locally-based, non-profit hospice and palliative care provider is looking for volunteers to assist in a variety of roles.

This special work is for people that seek a meaningful volunteer experience and requires individuals who are emotionally mature, compassionate and comfortable with issues of death and dying.  Volunteers are needed to visit patients in area nursing facilities to visit with, read or sing to patients and also to visit with patients in the home setting. Volunteers are a vital and essential part of the agency’s team that brings broad end-of-life support to patients and families. Visiting Nurse has a well-established volunteer program that provides ongoing support and guidance for the volunteer.  A thorough training will be held soon.

Visiting Nurse serves patients in Adams, Allen, DeKalb, Huntington, Noble, Wabash, Wells and Whitley counties.  For additional information, please call Ann Blue, Volunteer Coordinator at (260) 435-3222 or annblue@vnfw.org.
