mvi HospiceCare always welcomes volunteers of all ages and skills to our Volunteer Program. We offer a comprehensive training program. Our trained volunteers provide patients with kindness, compassion, and caring. They support patients and families by providing periods of relief for caregivers or help with errands and other non-medical activities.
Volunteers often work with our Medical Director, Nurses, Home Health Aides and Homemakers, Social Worker, and Clergy during the Interdisciplinary Approach that Hospice maintains. Volunteers are vital in Hospice and the Hospice philosophy of care.
