One Smile at a Time

At Crossroads Hospice, we are all about creating the best possible experience for our patients, and our volunteering program is an important part of that. Our volunteers turn their time into meaningful, fulfilling moments by spending time with patients, sharing their talents, working on special projects, or helping out around the office. The more you smile, the better you feel because smiling boosts your immune system and releases endorphins and serotonin. We created “The Happiness Project,” a yearlong initiative, to create as many smiles for our patients as possible!
