You can still volunteer during this time and you don't have to leave your house!
During this time of COVID-19, hospice volunteers are sending hand- written note cards and are calling patients and their families. Hospice volunteers can visit patients in their homes if they are wearing the proper PPE (this is entirely up to the volunteer.) Volunteers do go through training. You can choose to be a patient volunteer or office volunteer. Patient volunteers can read, companion, do small chores for patients in their homes or facilities. Office volunteers can help with clerical work in the office.
The Volunteer Coordinator will work with you to customize your volunteering experience and to fit with your skills and availability. We even have virtual options and things that can be done from home.
There are so many volunteering opportunities that will match your skills and availability. It's up to you how little or how much you volunteer.

Our purpose: To assist patients in maintaining and improving their quality of life Our Strategy: To offer low-cost, outcome-driven health care at home Our Mission: To provide cost efficient, quality health care services to the patients entrusted to our care.
Hospice provides support and care for persons in the last phases of incurable disease so they may live as fully and as comfortable as possible. Hospice recognizes dying as a part of the normal process of living and focuses on maintaining the quality of remaining life. Hospice affirms life, and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice focuses on caring, not curing and in most cases care is provided in the patients home, which enables families to stay together in peace, comfort and dignity.
