Palliative/Hospice Volunteer Visiting
Hospice volunteers are specially trained, caring, dedicated individuals who offer their knowledge and experience to help both the client and their family through the disease process, treatment and outcome of their illness.
Volunteers provide transportation to medical appointments, grocery shopping, adult day programs, and other essential transportation.
VON volunteer visitors provide much-needed friendship and help alleviate worry, isolation and strain. They provide personal assistance, such as transportation to appointments. Volunteers are matched with clients after a health professional assesses the needs and interests of the client.
