Volunteers

Hospice Touch volunteers offer the human touch to hospice care. They are men and women of all ages working at various jobs, or going to school. They are willing to provide the kind of help that a good friend or neighbor might when someone is ill. Their non-medical care supports the interdisciplinary team in their efforts to provide the best comfort care possible for patients.


Volunteers laugh and cry with patients or family members while building relationships. Sometimes all that is needed is for someone to sit quietly and hold a hand, play music, or sing a song. Patient assignments are made as close to the volunteer's home as possible. Free training is provided.
