Hospice Volunteers make a difference!
Destiny Hospice Care
Volunteers visit our patients in their own homes to offer them companionship and to give caregivers that much needed few hours a week off from caregiving. Volunteers give NO hands on care but are a presence in the home to be sure the patient is safe while the caregiver is away. Sometimes patient's live alone and a Volunteer is essential to the patients' well being! Volunteers are given 20 hours of training and never go alone to their patients for the first time. They may read to a patient, watch t.v. with them so just sit and talk as patient's does a life review.

Hospice is a type of end of life care that gives 'palliative' care to patients which brings comfort and hope to the patient and their family. By easing or entirely removing physical, mental and spiritual anguish, patient's are able to focus on living and enjoying their loved ones in their final days. Hospice care is given in a patient's own home be it a private home or any type of live-in facility.
Volunteers are a part of that by being a helpful presence to the patient and their caregivers. Volunteers give NO physical hands-on care but they can help in a multiple of other ways.
