A hospice volunteer can help terminally ill patients and their families in a variety of ways including listening and conversing, reading books, playing music or games, or sharing an interest. This can be in a patient's home or an assisted living facility. -As a member of the Hospice Team, volunteers help by providing necessary care and compassion to patients and their families -Volunteers often form close ties to patients and their families, becoming the eyes and ears for the Hospice Team -Volunteers set their own schedule based on their availability. We ask that volunteers commit to at least 6 months and give at least 2 hours a month if possible -Volunteers gain satisfaction from making a difference in people's lives -Without volunteers, hospices could not continue to provide quality and compassionate care, which is so necessary at this difficult time of life.
