Spend some time with a hospice patient and create a special space for them-- reading, reviewing their life history, writing a letter to a loved one for them, playing cards, or just listening to their stories and providing companionship. As a Hospice Volunteer you are specially trained to support the patient and family in a variety of ways. For more information on how you can make a difference in the life of a hospice patient, call or email Cesslie Joy Pharr, Volunteer Coordinator at Brookdale Hospice: 719-367-3811 or firstname.lastname@example.org
