Have you ever felt deeply moved to make a positive difference in people's lives during their most vulnerable and challenging moments? If so, serving as a hospice volunteer might be the right path for you.

For many people (not just hospice patients) facing end-of-life realities is a daunting and uncomfortable journey. But help is available, and you can play an important role in providing that help.

As an LHC Group/Wuesthoff Brevard Hospice volunteer, you'll step into someone else's world just when they need you the most - providing the invaluable gift of companionship. Whether it's engaging in heartfelt conversations, reading a favorite book, or simply holding a hand, your presence can bring immense comfort to those facing the end of life.

The top three reasons you should consider volunteering with LHC Group:

1. Build communication skills by working with patients, families and healthcare professionals.
2.Gain a healthy perspective on death and dying by helping others cope with the realities of life and death.
3.Develop empathy and compassion by interacting with patients and families who are facing end-of-life challenges. This experience helps many people become more understanding and supportive individuals.
