About

Our volunteers are vitally important to our hospice program. Volunteers provide companionship and emotional support to our patients and families during the last chapter of the patients' lives. Volunteer will go into the homes and have direct contact with the patients and their families. The caregivers have a full time job of caring for the patient 24/7 and sometimes they need some relief - either to run to the grocery store, go get their hair done, go to a doctor's appointment themselves, or simply go in the back room and take a nap! Our caregiver relief volunteers can go into the home and sit with the patient while the caregiver runs their errands, takes that nap, etc. Volunteer interaction is so very valuable to our patients and families, but is just as rewarding to our volunteers, who consider it an honor to work with them.
