Brenda Palmatier

We are a hospice company serving Blount, Loudon and Roane Counties. We need patient care to provide comfort for those in their end-of-life journey.

Some of our patients have a limited support system or no one at all. A smile and a gentle word of care can mean more at this time of life than any other. There is no "hands on" care. We have a great need for patient volunteers in all three counties.

These volunteers help with the patients and their caregivers for companionship, caregiver support to talk or sit while the caregiver runs errands among other requests such as preparing a meal. There is no "hands on" care and the visits last from 20 minutes to two hours. The visits are done according to the patient, family needs and volunteer availability.
