What: Hospice Volunteers are special and a very important part of the hospice team. Patient Care Volunteers visit with patients and their families. These visits might include reading to the patient, relieving the caregiver for a short time or "just being there". Volunteers are also needed in the office to assist staff with answering the phone and general office duties. In different ways, each volunteer touches the lives of patients and families. Found out how YOU can make a difference in someone's life!!
