Do you want to change your perspective of life? To do something fulfilling and with purpose? Something personally satisfying and of great service to your community? Consider becoming a hospice volunteer.

Volunteers are needed with day time availability to assist terminally ill patients and their families who live in your community. Becoming a hospice volunteer is similar to helping a neighbor in need.
You don't need medical skills or a college degree. You don't even need to know what to say.

All you need is an open mind and a giving heart.
Volunteers offer hope and comfort in a variety of ways:
- Family Support - provide respite, companionship, emotional support, and household assistance to patients and their families.

- Vigil Volunteers - sit with hospice patients who are actively dying and do not have family or friends to sit with them or have family members who need respite.

- Veteran Recognition - volunteer veterans acknowledge the military service and sacrifices made by veterans and their families.

This is just a few of the ways that you can be involved. The primary qualification is a desire to help someone in need.
