A Hospice Volunteer is a member of a team who works with dedicated professionals and a support staff made up of physicians, skilled nurses, certified home health aides, homemakers, social workers, chaplains, and bereavement specialists who understand the special goals of hospice care. All members focus their efforts on easing the symptoms of the terminally ill patient and provide support to their families.
Hospice helps ease the physical, emotional, and spiritual pain of dying patients. The goal of hospice care is to help a person’s last months be as fulfilling and comfortable as possible.
Hospice Volunteers are:
- Part of the hospice team
- Special people who are well-trained

Volunteers serve in many ways:
- A good listener of all concerns
- A good communicator and organizer

- A good friend
- A good link to other team members
