About

The VNSNY Hospice Care volunteer’s role is to be a supportive, caring person to the patient, caregiver and family. Our goal is to provide comfort, care and choice to our patients and their families during this difficult time in their lives. Some of the ways that volunteers help includes visiting to ease social isolation, calling caregivers and families to offer emotional support, reading, listening to music, playing games, knitting, helping patients write memoirs and more. Volunteers with special skills, such as singing, massage or hairstyling are also needed. Bilingual Volunteers are also needed in all boroughs. VNSNY Hospice Care provides expert, compassionate care for individuals and families living with progressive, serious illness at the end of life. We are the resource of choice for hospice and palliative care information, education and service for every resident and health care provider in Metropolitan New York.
