Beacon Hospice seeks volunteers

EAST PROVIDENCE - Beacon Hospice provides quality end-of-life care to local terminally-ill patients out of its East Providence office and relies on volunteers to ensure the delivery of care to these patients.

Volunteers are needed to provide much needed support to patients and their families in a number of ways, including visiting with patients on an ongoing basis, sitting vigils, knitting blankets/crocheting afghans, organizing craft projects and providing music therapy, reiki or pet therapy. Veterans are also needed to provide one-on-one companionship to other veterans.

Contact Kristy Corbett, volunteer coordinator, at 401-438-0008 or email kristy.corbett@beaconhospice.com.
