- Vigil Volunteers bring a calming presence for patients who are near the end of their journey. It is our goal to ensure that, based on patients’ wishes, no one dies alone. Vigil volunteers also provide valuable support for family members as they experience their loved one’s final hours.
- Home Care Volunteers provide respite for the caregiver, companionship for the patient, and general support as needed.
- Inpatient Care Volunteers schedule a specific time weekly to visit patients and participate in a variety of supportive activities to enhance the daily lies of patients living in the Hospice Centers and provide assistance to
staff as needed. An additional half-day hands-on training is provided for those wishing to volunteer in this area.
- Bereavement Volunteers follow up by phone with bereaved family members to check on their well being and explain our bereavement support opportunities.
- Teen Volunteers add a wonderful inter-generational component to the care provided to patients and families in the Hospice Centers and nursing homes. They visit with patients, assist staff and help visitors and families in a variety of ways. See the teen volunteer brochure for more details.
