Patient/Family Care Volunteers perform a range of tasks centered around providing comfort and support to patients and their loved ones throughout the Washington DC area and/or provide in-person support in our inpatient unit at Sibley Hospital.

Would you like to be a companion to a hospice patient? Help a family? Volunteers provide support to patients and loved ones doing tuck in calls, writing letters, delivering flowers, and spending time visiting patients just to mention a few of the ways to reach out to patients. The meaningful work of providing bedside companionship is what hospice volunteers provide. Volunteers spend time with patients and their families to celebrate life moments and overall provide much needed companionship.
