Volunteers for Hospice/Palliative Care Patients
18 people are interested
Being a volunteer for a hospice patient as well as for the family is very rewarding. This could entail a visit to the patient and family, playing bingo at nursing facilities, providing arts & crafts therapy. Creating a video story of the patient’s history to provide to the family as well as taking photographs of patient and family with the patient and families permission.
Holidays are a special time for patients and families and providing visits is always a comfort. We also provide hospice to Veterans. Volunteers can ensure the patient honored for their service.
There are many ways to provide comfort and companionship to our patients and families. Some suggestions are as follows:

1. Provide direct care and/or companionship
2. Preparation of meals or assist with household chores
3. Provides a clean, safe and comfortable environment.
1. Participate in special projects or fundraisers
2. Provide clerical support to staff

Providing the highest quality service and support possible.
We are a social worker owned hospice that has been providing hospice services to patients and families for over 8 years.

We see this as an opportunity for patients diagnosed with an end-of-life illness to live life to the fullest and cherish every day and event.
We go above and beyond in providing a comprehensive approach to care. We encourage each and every patient to not focus on the limitations but the opportunity to love life.
To achieve comfort care and manage the terminal illness we involve social work, chaplain and volunteer services.
