Compassion, empathy, openheartedness, and presence are some of the basic needs for a hospice patient and their loved ones.
Your gift as a volunteer is not just about how much time is spent with the dying, but the quality of that human contact with them. In that one hour a week, there is someone who will receive comforting companionship, instead of loneliness and isolation.
