The spirit of hospice volunteering is borne from a genuine desire to give comfort, peace, and care to patients, caregivers, and families during the end of life.
Hospice volunteers have a tremendous impact on the lives of the patients that they serve, the hospice team of which they are a part, and the families and friends of the terminally ill. Understanding the role of hospice volunteers, the ways in which volunteers can serve, and the impact that volunteering has on the lives of the patient, the patient’s family, and the volunteer, can better equip those who are interested in becoming a hospice volunteer.
Regional Hospice is your local hospice. Community members taking care of their own. Our volunteers are your neighbors and friends.
Volunteers are an integral part of Regional Hospice team, filling roles that range from direct patient contact to providing clerical and fundraising support for the Regional Hospice Team.
Medicare guidelines require hospice organizations to utilize volunteers along with paid clinical and administrative staff.
Regional Hospice Services Grantsburg/Spooner team volunteers take a very active role in patient’s care. Regional Hospice Services is a local non-profit hospice, providing care to those with life-limiting illness regardless of the ability to pay.
We are community members, neighbors, family, friends taking care of each other.
