About

Vigil volunteers are trained to be able to go and sit with a hospice patient who is in the process of dying so that they do not die alone. Sometimes a Vigil Volunteer is needed to help relieve the family who may need to rest or they may be needed because the hospice patient does not have any family that are able to come to be with them at their time of death. No hands on care is required. Just someone with a caring heart to sit and hold a hand. Full training is provided.

**"The last good thing that may happen in a person's life is a hospice volunteer"**
