Hospice Program Volunteers
Volunteers who attend Hospice Volunteer Training and meet screening guidelines are assigned to a patient/family. This individual participates in end–of–life care by assisting family caregivers. It can be as little as providing time to allow the caregiver to shop, have some alone time, attend to personal appointments, etc. to the point of providing direct patient care assistance, such as changing linens or cleaning. Hospice staff provides specific patient care requirements.
