About

Legacy Program volunteers make visits to patients’ homes for the sole purpose of helping the patient document their life story. The volunteer will make several visits to the patient’s home and will facilitate the telling of the patient’s life story which will be recorded on a handheld digital recorder. Legacy Program volunteers are attuned to the fact that our patients have limited energy and stamina and will adjust their visit length accordingly. Once visits are complete, and the patient has had a chance to make revisions/edits, the volunteer will type of the life story, including any pictures the patient wishes to include, and will present the finished project to the patient. All of our hospice volunteers have signed a confidentiality agreement and have signed that they agree to abide by HIPPA and have signed an equipment agreement that the patient’s confidential information will not be shared. If a patient would rather write letters to their loved ones, the volunteer can assist with this request.
