Attendees at this informational meeting will receive a brief overview of different volunteer programs such as Hospice care, Transitions pre-hospice support and Bereavement support.
Examples of hospice volunteer activities are: calling and checking in on patients and their families, reading to patients, providing emotional and spiritual support, running errands, active listening, cooking meals, driving to medical appointments. Volunteers are considered full members of the hospice team and no volunteer is ever asked to do anything beyond their emotional or physical capabilities.
