Caregivers frequently need someone to come in to stay with a family member for a few hours so that they can go to doctor's appointments, meeting or run errands. We need volunteers to stay with our patient to keep them company and make sure that they are safe. Volunteers are not expected to do any personal care for patients, but may be asked to make a light lunch or get snacks. This provides a chance for our families to have a break to get out of the home Our volunteers are a valuable addition to our hospice team.The make it possible for us to offer quality end of life care to our patients.View our video:
