Mission Statement

Our Mission Statement: Honoring Life Offering Hope

Description

Volunteers play an extremely important role in hospice. Without them, most hospices would not be able to carry on their work.

There are some 95,000 volunteers in America. Each year they give more than 5 million hours helping dying persons and their families.

They provide assistance at all skill levels. Many are relatives and friends of former hospice patients who, having seen how much hospice can help, want to contribute to its good work.

As a direct patient care volunteer you would be providing the patient and/or family with emotional support and companionship. Volunteer activities with patients include watching TV, reading, listening to music, crafts, listening, talking and providing caregiver respite.

As an indirect volunteer you will be providing administrative and office support to the hospice team. This may include copying, answering phones and special projects.

As a volunteer you will provide care and support that is unique to each patient's needs. By doing this you can create a bond between you, the patient and family that is priceless.
