About

Come join us at Berkley Palliative Care and Hospice LLC where we provide quality end of life care to our patients in their homes, assisted livings, and nursing homes. Hospice home visitor volunteers go to patients homes and provide companionship to patients and families who are often isolated and unable to easily get out of the home due to debilitating medical conditions. Hospice home visitor volunteers and read, scrapbook, and write letters and emails with patients as well as enjoy reminiscing with fascinating people about their lives. Volunteers are encouraged to share any artistic or musical talents with patients and families if that would be enjoyable for them.

By staying with patients for a couple of hours or an afternoonm volunteers also provide caregivers with the opportunity to run to the store, to get a hair cut, to see their own doctor, or just have some quiet time. Volunteers need not be medical professionals as volunteers are not expected to be care provider. Volunteers are not to administer medications, provide medical care, or drive patients and families. Volunteers may call the hospice office with any questions or concerns about a patient and hospice medical staff will be alerted if there is a need for medical care.
