What role does the Hospice volunteer serve?

Hospice volunteers may provide different types of support to patients and their families including running errands, preparing light meals, staying with a patient to give caregivers a break, and lending emotional support and companionship. All patient/family volunteers receive a minimum of 20 hours of intensive training in understanding Hospice, confidentiality, working with families, listening skills, signs and symptoms of approaching death, loss and grief, and bereavement support.
