He or she can also provide the caregiver a much needed break, in order to rest, run and errand or go to an appointment.

Description

Our volunteers are vitally important to our hospice program. Volunteers provide emotional support to our patients and families during the very important last chapter of our patients' lives. Some volunteers continue their support to the bereaved following the death of a patient. Volunteer Services are delivered directly to the patient in the home or in the office by supporting our hospice program administratively. Some volunteers even serve in a capacity from their own homes! Volunteer interaction is so very valuable to our patients and families, but is just as rewarding to our volunteers, who consider it an honor to work with them.
