RSVP volunteers 55 and older provide companionship and emotional support to terminally ill patients in Northampton MA or Amherst MA, in a Hospice facility or in the patient's home. Training, a CORI check and ongoing supervision is required. Volunteers do not give hands-on or medical care.

RSVP volunteers also provide fund raising support to Hospice Programs by helping in Northampton and Amherst thrift shops. These shops provide financial support to the hospice programs. Have fun receiving, displaying and selling donated items to benefit Hospice.
