Why do you want to Volunteer?

HOC Volunteer Interests

HOC Volunteers serve in one of three Settings: 

1. Home Care (HC) - Volunteers are matched with a patient in their neighborhood that needs companionship or caregiver support. HC Volunteers typically visit 2-4 times per month. 

2. Long Term Care (LTC) - Volunteers are Friendly Visitors to all HOC patients in a particular retirement community, visiting 2-4 times per month. 

3. HOC Inpatient Care Center (IPCC) -  Volunteers provide generalized support for the unit, direct patient care and companionship at the direction of the nursing team. 

Please check all of your volunteer interests.
