About

Family Support Volunteers provide support and companionship for the patients and families of Regional Hospice of Western CT. Volunteers might: visit with a patient to give some respite time to the caregiver; drive the patient to an appointment; bring the patient out for a drive, a cup of coffee, some ice cream, or a ride around a lake; run errands; do grocery shopping; plant some flowers; read the newspaper or a favorite book; drop off a home-cooked meal for the family; whatever the need, we try to fill it!

Volunteers visit our patients in their homes, in skilled nursing facilities, in assisted living facilities, or in our new in-patient hospice facility, the Center for Comfort Care & Healing. Some volunteers feel more comfortable in one setting, others are comfortable in any setting. The choice of location, time, type of activity, and distance from home is agreed upon between the volunteer and the Volunteer Coordinator.
