Hope Hospice Patient Support Volunteer Services

Patient & Family Support

Patient and family support volunteers provide weekly companionship visits to Hospice patients and/or caregiver relief to families.  They assist the hospice team in meeting the personal, practical, spiritual, and emotional needs of Hospice patients and their families. 

In addition, patient and family support volunteers  may choose to focus their service on a particular opportunity, such as playing instruments at the bedside. Some of these opportunities may require additional training.

Patient and family support volunteers  Opportunities include: 

  • Companionship Visits
  • Caregiver Relief (respite for family members)
  • Music at the Bedside
  • Reading/games/art
