Hospice Volunteers are trained to provide compassionate support.
Hospice Volunteers provide support and assistance to terminally ill patients and their families and caregivers. One of the most important things that a hospice volunteer does is to listen. Talking about an impending death is not always a topic that is comfortable for family members, but it is a subject that often needs to be addressed. Hospice volunteers are in a unique position to help patients, their families and their caregivers in exploring feelings and thoughts.
