Volunteers visit a Bethesda Hospice patient

Are you a caring musician, singer, or member of a musical group with few hours a month to give? Volunteer with Bethesda Hospice Care, and help make someone's last days, good days!

You'll be able to choose when you visit your patients and how many patients you would like to visit, so this volunteer opportunity is a good fit for any schedule. Plus, we have several care facilities in the St. Louis metro area, so you can choose to visit patients at the facility that is most convenient for you!
