About

Every act of kindness or service is of absolute, equal importance. Every patient want or need is a treasure revealed...

Do you enjoy visiting with people and being of help to others? Join our Patient Care Volunteer Team! Patient Care Volunteers offer kindness, attention and thoughtful support to our hospice patients and their families at a time when it means the most.

Patient Care Volunteers visit patients and/or hospice family members one hour a week to provide a caring presence, ease loneliness and provide help with projects or enjoyable activities. Activities can range from sharing a cup of coffee while reading the newspaper or maybe The Bible out loud to your patient, to doing art at the bedside, to providing a quiet presence during a tender time, to working on a life review project, to sharing a creative activity, to doing special things your patient is not able to enjoy without some extra help.

Volunteers mean so much to our patients and families! Training and great support from the hospice staff will be provided! Visit our website at: www.goodshepherdhospice.com, or contact Pamela Williams at 713-664-4447 or pamela.williams@goodshepherdhospice.com for more information
