Compassionate, dedicated people join our Hospice team of volunteers to provide companionship and support to the many patients and families who are facing the most difficult time of their lives. Devoting 2-4 hours of personal time on a weekly basis could make a world of difference to a patient and their family in the hospice program. Volunteers play an extremely important role in hospice. Without volunteers we would not be able to carry on our work. It is true that our volunteers are, “Special people doing special things”, and we proudly invite “you” to join our dedicated team of volunteers.
