People helping people....That's what giving to Hospice is all about.
Life is for the living....for as long as possible. Our Patients and their families need volunteers for a variety of reasons! Companionship and the ability to listen are so important! And the most requested by patients who have no one else. Volunteers offer arts & craft skills, cooking skills, manicures, haircuts, pet therapy, massage therapy, Reiki and more! Our Military Veteran patients prefer visits with Volunteers who are Veterans themselves. Take your patient for a wheelchair walk in the sun or fill up their bird feeders for them! Or, just sit quietly and crochet or knit, play Words with Friends or look at old family photos with them. Make a Chart of Life for the patient and their family. Each patient has a different need and each Volunteer has something different to offer.

Wentworth Hospice give patients who are facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live ALL the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity and quality of life. As a Hospice volunteer, and as an important part of our hospice care team, you can help improve the quality of life for our patients, as well as their families and caregivers. We go to great lengths to help patients and their loved ones live each day to its fullest. The Wentworth Hospice team understands that as you approach the end of life, every moment matters.

How Does Hospice Work? Volunteers choose how they want to give of their time. In a nursing facility or in the patient's home? Morning or afternoons? What day of the week. We ask that you commit to a patient at least one hour a week. They come to depend on your company! Time is valuable. And, at the end of life, every moment matters. Consider giving some of your time to make others' lives brighter....you may find that your life becomes brighter too.
