Volunteers are an integral part of the AccentCare team, providing compassion and care when it is needed most. As the heart and hands of the hospice team, they provide a special kind of caring to patients, families, and staff through helping to make the hospice experience manageable and rewarding.
Friendly Visitors or Direct Patient Care Volunteers enrich the lives of patients by providing emotional support and companionship for the patient and their families within their home residence. Volunteers can help in various ways such as, reading, listening to music, making crafts, helping patients make a legacy project, watching movies, and more.
