MORE ABOUT HOSPICE VOLUNTEERS
Hospice Volunteer services may be provided in client homes, in nursing homes or in hospitals. Volunteers are assigned based on their availability, comfort level, interests and where they reside (in proximity to clients). They follow and support the same client for up to two years. All volunteers must participate in an interview, training and screening process. Criminal and driving history background checks are done on all volunteers who work directly with clients.
