Trained Volunteers for Support Services — Early hospices were founded and operated by volunteers. These dedicated people continue to be the backbone of today's hospice. They are trained in good listening skills and provide compassionate support for both patient and family. They offer companionship and help with everyday tasks such as shopping, babysitting, and car pooling, which are part of the family's routine. Volunteer services may also include professional and personal care services as described in the above sections.
