Providence Hospice respite volunteers provide comfort and companionship to terminally ill patients so that exhausted family caregivers can take a break. In one-on-one time with a patient in their home setting, you might read a book aloud, reminisce about the past, help make lunch, assist to the bathroom, laugh and cry together, or simply sit quietly and provide supportive presence. Each patient is unique, each volunteer assignment is different; but every patient and every assignment will touch your heart and bring something special into your life.
Providence Hospice serves the Porltand Metro area and we have volunteer opportunities in your area that can work around your schedule.
