Encompass Hospice of Central Texas is dedicated in providing quality of life to each and every patient. We rely on generous volunteers like you to bring valuable and rewarding experiences to the patients and their families that we serve.
As a person interested in medical school, this was the absolute best way to get experience with health care providers and patients. Through this experience I had the opportunity to interact with patients one on one and had meaningful conversations with these individuals. I would recommend volunteering with hospice care patients for those interested in the medical field but also for those who are looking to provide support to those going through a difficult time. This volunteering opportunity has been such a positive experience with such helpful staff and coordinators. I truly am so thankful to be a volunteer with such an amazing organization.
