Do you love to learn about people's past? Are you fascinated by the stories and the experiences of others?
Using a tape recorder, video recorder, and/or photographs to help hospice patients tell their Life's Story and capturing their memories in real-time, to pass onto their families. This program will help keep our patients' fascinating experiences alive for the next generation.
All training and education will be provided. We just need people who are dedicated to serving their communities, are kind, compassionate, and passionate about life - to help make this program special.

"To provide quality end of life carethrough listening and education and responding to the needs of those we serve, our community and team."
Gateway Hospice volunteers are the heart of our organization. Volunteers do a variety of different things that help promote our mission of providing quality end of life care. From providing a listening ear as a companion volunteer, to providing respite for the caregiver to go grocery shopping or to their own medical appointment, to managing special projects in our North Hills office as "behind the scenes" support. Volunteers also can get involved with our bereavement program, making phone calls to bereaved family and friends. Music and art are a powerful way volunteers can connect with our patients, especially those with dementia. Pets are welcomed to pay friendly visits to our patients residing in nursing homes. The possibilities go on and on.
If you are interested in learning more, please call us at 412-536-2020, or email Suzanne Ferguson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
