NewportNewport, RI 02840


A Vigil Volunteer provides support, upon request, to patients and families during their loved ones final days and hours of life. These volunteers serve on an on-call basis. When there is an actively dying patient who wishes for a Vigil, the on-call volunteer is contacted and will drive to the patient within the hour. Vigil services are provided in patient homes, at all of our facilities and at our partner nursing homes. These volunteers have completed a variety of trainings in regards to patient care and the physical and spiritual aspects of dying. Vigil Volunteers provide specialized support tailored to each individual patient and family needs.

Vigil Volunteers offer a variety of services and often speak, read, or simply offer their company to patients as they pass. Kindred Hospice believes that, unless desired, no one should die alone. These volunteers also extend their support to family members and friends that are present at the time of death.
