AseraCare Hospice is seeking volunteers can play a musical instrument and/or can sing and are interested in utilizing their talents to play or sing for our patients!

Music brings peace to the dying and comfort to their families. The music outreach is to create therapeutic music to help brighten the last days/hours of life for patients. Volunteers can visit on their own or we can join together in groups of two or three and visit patients in the area, bringing them the gift of music.

They must be able to play an instrument or be able to sing.Instruments with a soft and soothing sound are preferred such as guitar, autoharp or violin etc.This program is very open and flexible to those special people that are interested in helping others. Volunteers play an important role in providing social support and decreasing isolation that can so often occur for the terminally ill.
