Giving of your Self and Time to Hospice Patients
Hospice volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team responsible for providing quality care and support.
Hospice volunteers use their talent of listening and their gift of caring to provide patients and caregivers comfort and peace during the end of life process.
Hospice volunteers are a valuable part of our team.
We understand that the relationship a volunteer and patient have is unique in a way the staff may not always have.
The Hospice volunteer role is instrumental in the emotional, and spiritual well-being of our patients.
