Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Hospice is a philosophy of care. The hospice philosophy or viewpoint accepts death as the final stage of life. The goal of hospice is to help patients live their last days as alert and pain-free as possible. Hospice care tries to manage symptoms so that a persons last days may be spent with dignity and quality, surrounded by their loved ones. Hospice affirms life and neither hastens nor postpones death. Hospice care treats the person rather than disease; it focuses on quality rather than length of life. Hospice care is family centered - it includes the patient and the family making decisions together.
New Hope is currently seeking volunteers that would like to dedicate time to help our patients and their families through this special time in their life. Opportunities are varied and individualized to match your skills. Clerical opportunities are also available. We also accommodate service learning hours for college students.
