An Angel volunteer is a non-medical volunteer trained to provide emotional support to the patient and family in the last hours of life. The goal of the program is to provide physical, compassionate presence during the last hours of living to hospice patients having only one or no primary caregiver. Angel Volunteers ensure that each patient has a hand to hold during their last hours of life.
