Hospice volunteers offer a compassionate, non-judgmental, listening and respectful presence. Trained volunteers provide non-medical care, which is integrated into the professional health care team in the client’s home. Volunteers are supported by the Hospice Case Manager who is in contact with both the volunteer and client regularly to ensure quality and satisfaction of care. Volunteer services may include:
- personal care: assistance with meals, daily activities, grocery shopping and other errands
- accompaniment to medical and other related appointments
- respite care for primary caregivers
- children’s support
- spiritual/bereavement support
