About

Direct patient care volunteers will complete a total of 24 hours of free training. Once completed, you will become an integral part of the interdisciplinary Premier Hospice team that provides direct support and comfort to terminally ill patients and their families. You will visit patients in their homes, assisted living facilities and nursing homes. As a direct patient volunteer, you givethe gift of your presence. You may hold a hand, read a story, write a letter, cook a meal, walk a dog, or run an errand. You come with no agenda to this patient at one of the most vulnerable and frightening times in their life, and you offer companionship and support. You have the privilege of witnessing to the life of this man or woman, or perhaps helping them finish the business of their lives, and companioning them in this final transition. You may also be listening ear and compassionate heart for their families, friends and caregivers.
