Our mission is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals and their families when facing a life-limiting illness.
Volunteers may work in a variety of capacities, including: 1. Patient care volunteers provide emotional support and practical assistance, which enhance the comfort and quality of life for patients and families/caregivers. These services include being available for companionship, listening, simply "being there," and preparing meals. Patient care volunteers may also provide relief for caregivers or assist them with household chores. 2. Bereavement volunteers provide anticipatory counseling and bereavement support to families/caregivers. 3. Office volunteers lend their services working in hospice's administrative offices. These activities may include assembling information packets, filing, photocopying, and assisting with mailings.
