As a volunteer, you help fulfill the promise of Hospice in many ways. You are the hand to help and to hold, the friendly face that brings warm conversation or welcome respite. From providing companionship to offering assistance with the activities of daily living or serving as an empathetic counselor, our trained volunteers provide invaluable services!

Patient/Family Care Volunteers provide companionship to the patient and respite for the caregiver as a part of the Hospice Team. Volunteers help by visiting, reading to patients, writing letters, providing transportation, running errands, preparing meals, providing hair care and light housekeeping. Perhaps the most important thing the volunteer offers is listening, sharing quiet moments, giving a gentle pat on the arm and just being there
