About

Our hope is that no one dies alone. The purpose of the Compassionate Care Team is to provide vigil support to hospice patients during their final hours. The emphasis is on providing comfort during the dying process. Team members offer a supportive presence to those who are dying without family or loved ones available. Or, volunteers may be asked to support family members who either need a break from the bedside of their loved one or the emotional support of a caring person. These volunteers work side-by-side with hospice professionals in providing care and comfort when it is needed most.

Vigil Volunteer Support is requested on an as-needed basis (with respect to the volunteer's schedule and location). While we do our best to accommodate vigil requests any time of the day, there is a great need for volunteers overnight between the hours of 10pm - 8am. Volunteers typically sit vigil in shifts of 2-4 hours per visit.

Being part of the Compassionate Care Team requires maturity, professionalism, sound judgment, effective communication skills and compassion.
