About

We need you! Volunteers are an essential part of our hospice team. Our volunteers add to the quality of a patient's time at the end of life's journey. Typical activities include - visiting, reading, singing/listening to music and providing support to the patient's family. Volunteers visit patients in their homes or elder-care facilities in the DFW metroplex. Volunteers are matched to patients located near them. Volunteers usually spend about an hour a week with their patients/families. No special skills needed.

Training is provided, quarterly on a Saturday in our Flower Mound office. The next training will take place in January 2017, date TBD.
