Our hospice volunteers provide an invaluable service to those who are nearing the end-stage of their lives and their family members.

Our hospice volunteers offer support in the following areas:

  • Companionship
  • Respite for caregivers
  • Running errands
  • Shopping
  • Light housekeeping (cleaning, laundry)
  • Meal preparation
  • Transportation
  • Bereavement support
  • Emotional support
  • Assembling mailings and informational packets
  • Writing condolence cards
  • Special projects

Our hospice volunteers are fully trained to better support the patient and family members. Volunteers receive training in matters from medical issues to spiritual concerns to psycho-social issues to bereavement.

The Result: A sacred outreach, providing our hospice patients with one more listening ear, helpful hand, and compassionate heart.
