Why Volunteer at Homestead?

There are many advantages in volunteering, from gaining personal satisfaction to an addition on your resume or college application, ultimately everyone benefits from good deeds. Your time and presence brings joy to families everywhere. Many patients cherish social interaction and enjoy sharing stories.

“My Dad was in ICU with Leukemia. His wish was to pass away at home and not in the hospital. After three long weeks of being in ICU he was not improving so he was referred to Hospice. Homestead Hospice, Warner Robins received the referral and he was home same day. He was put on Continuous Care, the Homestead team never left. He passed away the next day peaceful at home surrounded by his family. I know this would not have happened without Shay Massey the Administrator at the Warner Robins office working so hard to get him home on high flow O2. My family and I will always be grateful for the love and care shown to my Dad and family during this time. I know that we wouldn't have been able to go through this without the Warner Robins, Homestead team.“The Collins Family
