We have been helping families maintain independence at home, with compassion, in communities throughout Western New York since 1971.
Our hospice program provides medical care and emotional support for patients and their families coping with a terminal illness. The focus is on quality of life.
We have different types of Volunteers, that each offer a different type of support to Hospice:
- Patient Volunteers
- Bereavement Volunteers
- Office Volunteers
- Event Volunteers
A Patient Volunteer is an important asset as a listener, someone to talk and reminisce with, and to provide companionship and support to patients and their families. Patient Volunteers can also provide support to the patient or patient’s caregivers.
- Some examples of what Patient Volunteers do is having conversation with patient and/or caregiver, review life experiences, reading, puzzles, bedside art or music, performing light chores, sitting with the Patient while Caregiver runs errands or take a break, or running errands for the Patient and/or Caregiver.
