As the Volunteer Coordinator for Bristol Hospice, it is my mission to provide our patients with a lasting legacy. As a Volunteer you can give our patients that chance to live by:

  • Support for the patient, listening walking, holding a hand, letter writing, reading taking pictures, encouraging a life review, pet therapy, music therapy, light housekeeping, and assisting the family or caregiver if requested.
  • Administrative work in our office, answering phones, filing, preparing mailings, making patient admission packets, and helping with Bereavement phone calls and letters.
