Hospice of the Chesapeake
Patient Care Volunteer

All our patients regardless of financial status recieve the best possible quality care. We provide hospice and other palliative care, as well as compassionate support and education.
What does a Patient Care Volunteer Do?
It takes only a small amount of time to make a big difference in a person's life. Patient Care Volunteers serve in a variety of ways to assist patients and family members. Whether it be spending time speaking with a patient at their bedside, offering support and compassion to their family, talking on the phone with a patients family about the day, or providing respite for a caregiver, volunteers play a critical role in helping give our patients and their loved ones the best possible care. You do not have to do all of these things-you can do any.
There's no better feeling than knowing that you have helped ease what can be a difficult time for patients and their families.
