About

Optimal Hospice Volunteers support hospice in the following ways:

  • Patient/Family Support Volunteers provide in-home respite care, which allows caregivers a few hours of much needed personal time. Talk, listen to music, play cards, domino's or board games.
  • Companionship Volunteers spend time visiting with our patients in nursing and assisted living facilities.
  • Bereavement Care Volunteers do follow up phone calls to families/friends to see how they are doing.
  • Veteran to Veteran Volunteers offer support for those who have served. Share stories.
  • Administrative Volunteers provide valuable in-office assistance for volunteer and bereavement services.
  • Pet Therapy Volunteer Teams offer animal loving patients the unconditional companionship that only a cuddly animal can provide.
  • Professional Service Volunteers donate their unique skill to help improve quality of life. For example, they can offer a haircut, manicure, massage or a little help to tide your home or yard. Must be licensed.
