About

Are you a warm and compassionate person? Would you consider spending time providing companionship and support to a hospice patient and his/her caregivers?

The hospice team (medical, psychosocial, spiritual clinicians and volunteers) supports a patient and his/her family exactly where they are. The role of the volunteer is pivotal to providing a well-rounded approach to end of life care. As a patient visitor you would be invited to participate in a patient’s plan of care in a gentle way: Listening to life stories, reading, watching TV programs, playing games, providing quiet presence; these are all things the trained volunteer will offer a patient and family caregivers.
