Hospice Volunteer Visiting


Our caring hospice visiting volunteers provide support for adults facing life-threatening illnesses.

Visits usually take place once a week for about 1-2 hours in the client’s home. Depending on the client’s ability, volunteers may also take the client out for a walk or a drive.

These visits may also provide a break for the primary caregiver.

This service is offered free of charge, through the generosity of our funders, donors and supporters.
