Volunteers provide companionship to patients and their caregivers. They sit with patients, talk, read, play music, watch TV or just provide some much needed company. Volunteers make their own hours and decide how much time they would like to volunteer. There is no hands on care.
We provide orientation and training so that volunteers feel comfortable from the very start.

As a team, we combine compassion with the art and science of medicine to help patients and families live life to its fullest.
Bristol Hospice works together with patients and their families to enhance their quality of life. When focus of medical care changes from cure to comfort, Optimal Hospice can provide physical, emotional, practical and spiritual support for the entire family. Combined with a compassionate support system, hospice helps to reduce the overwhelming stress and anxiety that can come along with caring for a loved one with a life limiting illness. Volunteers provide in-home respite care for families/caregivers and provide companionship for our patients.
