Mission Statement

Hospice Volunteer Program The Hospice Volunteer Program exists to assist the interdisciplinary team (IDT) in the provision of end of life care for our patients, to help provide emotional support to our patients loved ones, and to provide additional support to the program overall. To provide quality volunteer services to patients, their loved ones and hospice staff through the recruiting, screening, training and supervision of volunteers. Maintain a diverse core of volunteers sufficient to provide administrative or direct patient care in an amount that, at a minimum, equals five percent (5%) of the total patient care hours of all paid hospice employees and contract staff. Provide oppotunities for members of the community to serve in meaningful and fulfilling ways. Expand community education in areas of hospice, dying, death and bereavement issues.
