Volunteers are integral to our program and play an important role in improving the quality of life for our patients. We provide extensive training to our volunteers so that they understand the art of dying and are able to guide and support patients and their family members through the last days of life.
Ways to Get Involved
You are welcome to contribute in ways that are meaningful for you and that you are comfortable with. Our volunteers provide companionship and support at home, offer support to families at the time of death, and provide assistance in the office.
