Hospice is a type of end of life care that gives 'palliative' care to patients which brings comfort and hope to the patient and their family. By easing or entirely removing physical, mental and spiritual anguish, patient's are able to focus on living and enjoying their loved ones in their final days. Hospice care is given in a patient's own home be it a private home or any type of live-in facility.
Volunteers are a part of that by being a helpful presence to the patient and their caregivers. Volunteers give NO physical hands-on care but they can help in a multiple of other ways.
Though office hours are from 8:30 to 5:30 pm. Monday through Friday, a skilled nurse answers every after hours call and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week for patient visits as needed.
