Description

Hospice patient volunteers enter the lives of a family at a time when they are most vulnerable, and provide a listening ear and companionship. They hold hands, they listen and they provide support to both the patient and family while on their hospice journey. Hospice patient volunteers offer companionship to the patient, and respite opportunities for the family.  Training is provided.  Volunteers do not provide personal care.
