Hospital Visitation Program
Offering comfort to hospitalized members to nurture the spirit and foster healing.
This volunteer program builds upon the scientific evidence that optimal medical care involves the "whole' person and that the body, mind and spirit all need to be considered during the healing process.
A rigorous volunteer training course prepares our hospital visitors to offer individual attention and support to our hospitalized members.
Being hospitalized is often fraught with uncertainties, so our volunteers offer encouragement and support by way of compassionate listening, and if asked, with prayer. Our volunteers reach out to our members at a number of hospitals in the 5 boroughs of NY and Long Island.
