Hospice At Home Volunteers
Hospice at Home volunteers are a critical part of our Hospice team. These volunteers provide visits of companionship for patients with life-limiting illnesses and respite for caregivers. All Hospice At Home volunteers are provided with 20 hours of initial training, as well as monthly continuing education classes or self-study. They must also be 21 years of age or older, pass a background check and undergo yearly TB screenings.
