Palliative care is customizable to the needs of each patient, with some cases requiring these services at the onset of diagnosis. This in no way signals that there is no hope for recovery or cure, it is simply a way to make sure that each patient is as comfortable as possible.
Each day, hospice volunteers touch the lives of our patients and their families. Whether reading to a patient, preparing a meal for a family or cleaning up around the house, each gesture makes a meaningful impact on those we serve.
Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at the office or one-on-one with families, you are a valuable member of our hospice team. All volunteers receive free training at a local office.
