Hospice is a medical specialty dedicated to the support and care of persons with limited life expectancies so that they may live as fully and comfortably as possible. The hospice philosophy focuses on maintaining the quality of the patient’s life. With its dedicated team of interdisciplinary health care professionals and volunteers, Kindred at Home provides caring support for the patient and their family.Our Volunteer Program
Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice philosophy.
Hospice volunteers are there to hold a hand and listen, read or write a letter,
run errands or even help out in our office. Volunteers are there to step in
when a family member needs a break, and are there for the family and friends
after their loved one has passed away. No matter what your skills, talents or
motivation, we have the opportunity for you to help.
