Thank you for considering becoming a Bluegrass Care Navigator Volunteer. Our volunteers bring warmth, compassion and support to patients and the families that we serve. Volunteers are an integral part of our team. It takes a special kind of person to volunteer with Bluegrass Care Navigators and therefore all potential volunteers are carefully screened and are required to complete a comprehensive training program that is aligned with the National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization (NHPCO).
