Cost — Free of chargeHospice and palliative care programs provide care for the seriously and terminally ill and their families. Our three-day formal training process provides conversations, lectures, role playing, and videos to prepare volunteers for both palliative and hospice care. Volunteers learn about bereavement, body mechanics, communication, feeding, infection control, pain management and proper patient transfer techniques. Typically, volunteers visit the patient once or twice per week and interact through conversation, meal assistance and light housekeeping.
