One of our most invaluable resources is our volunteer program. Many of our volunteers were previously involved with hospice as family members.
How does a volunteer support hospice?
Providing respite to family
Socialization: reading, playing cards, sewing, simply being a friendly visitor to a patient
Office and administrative support
Offering their unique talents in any way toward supporting patients, families, and the community at-large
