Kindred Hospice

Hospice is a medical specialty dedicated to the support and care of persons with limited life expectancies, so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. The hospice philosophy focuses on maintaining the quality of life for each patient. Our interdisciplinary team of healthcare professionals and volunteers provides caring support to the patients and their families. Patient support volunteers provide friendly visits to hospice patients in their homes or long-term healthcare facilities. When making these visits companionship and support is offered to both the patient and their families.

Patient support volunteers must possess the ability to actively listen and communicate compassionately with patients, families and caregivers.

*Orientations and training will be provided for these volunteers.

Patient volunteers can also perform duties such as reading to the patients, playing games, writing letters on behalf the patients, assisting with small house hold chores or meal preparation. Volunteers do not provide any personal care, toileting, or transferring of patients.
