Family Volunteering Opportunity
Volunteers are an important part of the hospice team. Volunteers in the WMHS Home Hospice Program provide companionship and emotional support for patients and their families and can often enable the family caregiver to take a break from the responsibilities of around-the-clock care. Other types of assistance provided by these volunteers may include helping with errands, doing light housekeeping, preparing meals, creating diversionary activities, and providing transportation. For more information about these volunteer opportunities, please call 240-964-9000.
