Hospice Volunteers Make a Critical Difference

Volunteers provide important services to the community. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months or weeks of life, offering support to family members and caregivers, providing assistance in the office or helping with community outreach, the contributions of volunteers are an essential part of Interim HealthCare Hospice.
