“I volunteer because end of life can be a very lonely and difficult time. By volunteering I can help family members by giving them a break as I sit with their loved one, providing companionship and emotional support. Sometimes just having someone to talk to can be helpful” -Marlene R. Palliative Care Companion Volunteer
Palliative Care is presently provided throughout the region in hospitals, personal care homes and in the home, by a variety of caregivers including physicians, nurses, pharmacists, home care workers, pastoral care, families, friends and volunteers. The goal is the best possible quality of life for clients and their families.
