****VOLUNTEERS are now able to visit patients in their homes with COVID-19 precautions.
Do you have a heart for helping others and a little time to spare? If so, our patients and families/caregivers could use a compassionate friend.
Patient/Family Support Volunteers provide in-home respite care, which allows caregivers a few hours of much needed personal time. Talk, listen to music, watch TV, read or just be there to listen and hold a hand.
Companionship Volunteers spend time visiting with our patients in nursing and assisted living facilities who don't have family or friends visiting them.

As a team, we combine compassion with the art and science of medicine to help patients and families live life to its fullest.
Bristol Hospice works together with patients and their families to enhance their quality of life. When focus of medical care changes from cure to comfort, Optimal Hospice can provide physical, emotional, practical and spiritual support for the entire family. Combined with a compassionate support system, hospice helps to reduce the overwhelming stress and anxiety that can come along with caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness. Volunteers provide in-home respite care for families/caregivers and provide companionship for our patients.
