Announcing our newest community partner:

The mission of Good Shepherd Homecare & Hospice is to help patients that are terminally ill. Good Shepherd needs volunteers to help support hospice patients. For SLCC students this is a satisfying way to balance studies with one-on-one time with an elderly person. A hospice volunteer will offer a terminally ill individual and their family personal companionship, socialization, and a healing presence.

A current need for volunteers involves an elderly man, widowed and limited by lung concerns, that would like a volunteer to come to his house late afternoons/evening and play guitar and sing. Visits would be about an hour and occur once or twice a month in the vicinity of the Millcreek Library. The volunteer will need some training prior to visit.

Interested in volunteering with this partner? Contact Daniel Judd at 801.277.6474 or judddan@gmail.com and check out Good Shepherd Homecare and Hospice's website. Good Shepherd Homecare and Hospice is located at 5383 South 900 East, suite 102.
