Volunteers: The Heart of Hospice

You can make a difference in someone’s life!volunteer2

Volunteers are the heart of hospice. You can bring comfort and caring to patients and their families during a difficult time for all.

Unity Hospice Care is committed to the provision of compassionate care to our patients and their families.

We believe that each individual should be provided the opportunity to die in a dignified and comfortable manner.

One of the ways we do this is through the help of our amazing volunteers who give of themselves to make someone’s final days a bit easier by showing them compassion. Often the smallest actions can be so meaningful.

If you would like to talk to someone about becoming a hospice volunteer at Unity Hospice, please contact us.
