A basic belief of hospice care is that no one should die alone without the supportive presence of loved ones. 11th Hour Volunteers provide a comforting presence needed by our patients and families in the final hours of life. Patients who have little or no family nearby often find themselves isolated and alone during their last days. A volunteer, who is part of the Aviant Hospice team, can help fill the need for compassion, concern, comfort and a caring gentle touch in the last days or hours when a loved one is not available. 11th Hour Volunteers give the precious gift of being emotionally and mentally present as they honor our patients and make his or her transition from life to death a little easier.
Training is provided. Please include a phone number so we can contact you.Reports to:
