Volunteers are an important part of the Hospice Team at Lifespan.
Our hospice volunteers make a big difference in the lives of so many people in so many different ways. Our volunteers come from all walks of life and posses many different skills and interests, but share a common interest in helping others.
Lifespan Hospice Volunteers assist in a variety of roles, including helping patients and their families with household tasks, providing grief support to bereaved family members, and assisting in the hospice office.
