Patient care volunteers provide a vital service for the hospice patients. Theyメre able to give patients someone who will listen to their stories and talk with them. This type of volunteering is perfect for compassionate, empathetic people who want to help people who are at the end of their life.

Patient care volunteers spend time with hospice patients. Volunteers travel to the place where the patient currently lives. This could be the patientメs home, a nursing home, or a long-term care facility. Volunteers do not provide any medical or hands-on care. They simply spend time with the patient, talking with them and keeping them company, providing needed comfort and support. Volunteers also often play the patientメs favorite games with them, like cards or chess. Volunteers may also talk with patients about current events if thatメs something that the patient is interested in.
