Additional Information:

Our volunteers provide companionship to hospice patients.  They help our patients to feel special and more loved.  Some of the things they do with patients is read, sing, and scrapbook with them.  Some share life stories  and like to play card/board games.  Sometimes the volunteer just stays by the bedside so that the patient is not alone or afraid. 

Another area of volunteering is when the volunteer relieves the family members so they can get away from the home for doctor appointments, grocery shopping, or running errands.  

Last but not least we have Vigil Volunteers.  Whenever a patient that is actively dying and they do not have family members with them, our volunteers step in to make sure they do not die alone.
