About

The role of a vigil volunteer is to be with hospice patients in the last hours of their lives. Tasks may include reading a comforting poem or prayer, listening to soothing music, or just sitting quietly holding the patient's hand. Being present with the patient is the main job at this time. The vigil volunteer will complete 2 additional hours of specialized training above the visit volunteer training (14 hours) for a total of 16 hours. The training will focus on what to expect in the last hours of living and cultural differences related to dying..
