Do you have a heart of compassion for hospice patients? Love to be out at night? The night-owl vigil volunteer is a person the on-call nurse could call to sit with a patient for 1-4 hours between the hours of 5 PM and 6 AM. Did you know that almost 70% of our deaths occurred between these hours? In cases where the patient or the family desires accompaniment on their final journey, we need volunteers to be with them. During this time volunteers quietly play CDs or instruments, read from poetry or the Bible, or simply hold a hand!
