Hospice of the Valley cares for most of our patients in their homes or place of residence. When the needs of the patient and family can be better met in an inpatient setting, the patient can stay for a short period in one of our palliative care units (PCU). Often, patients’ loved ones spend several days at the PCU, neglecting care for themselves as they are caring for a loved one. Volunteers are needed to donate ingredients and cook a meal or dessert of the volunteer’s choosing on a weekly or bi-weekly basis at one of four PCU locations, Gilbert, Glendale, Phoenix or Surprise. A home-made meal or dessert is incredibly comforting and sustaining to our patients’ loved ones. Recipes can be simple; by no means must a volunteer be a chef to participate. All skill levels are welcome. This has been one of the most impactful volunteer projects we have offered. Under 18 years of age are welcomed with supervising adult.
