Vigil volunteers are the heart of hospice. They walk with others who are on their final and most sacred path or in their last hours.
Vigil volunteers may be asked to sit with a patient during daytime hours, evening and/or weekends. The average time per visit is usually between 2 and 4 hours. Volunteers rotate service/shifts to provide a team approach for support. Every effort is made to provide support until death occurs.
Our belief is that no one should die alone. A hospice patient can reside in their own home, an apartment, assisted living facility, or a nursing home. In most cases our volunteers are not asked to travel long distances to serve.
The goal of the program is to provide a physical, compassionate presence during the last hours of living to hospice patients having only one or no primary caregiver.
We'll work with your schedule.
