Volunteers make a significant difference in the lives of Hospice Patients, and are an important part of the hospice care team.
Hospice volunteers possess very special qualities. They come from various backgrounds but they all have a desire to serve their community by providing support to people, and their families, who are facing the final stages of life. Volunteers are very important members of the Hospice Care Team.
Becoming a volunteer for Whatcom Hospice is a big commitment. Whether you’re caring for an individual during the final stages of their lives, sewing a blanket for one of the Hospice House rooms or assisting with filing, you can make a significant difference in the life of someone facing a terminal illness.
We asked a Hospice chaplain, patient, family member, and a nurse to write a letter to someone about what they have learned through their hospice experience.
All Whatcom Hospice clinical services, including those provided at Hospice House, are delivered by PeaceHealth St. Joseph Medical Center with sustaining annual support provided by the Foundation.
