Life Choice Hospice seeks companion volunteers

Do you know that volunteering a little of your time can make a significant difference in the care and comfort of a person in hospice care? The volunteers of Life Choice Hospice in Westlake do. They share their time and talents with our patients, families and staff, supporting the Life Choice mission of "Inspiring Life."

More than touching the lives of others, volunteering will enhance the meaning and purpose of your life, too. By making such a vital difference to our patients, you will be fulfilled, experience personal growth and feel appreciated. As a hospice volunteer, you will surely receive as much as you give. Our volunteers often say that caring for our patients is both an honor and a privilege.

As a hospice volunteer, your role may be as simple as reading a story, holding a hand or taking a walk. It may include helping someone video connect with his or her grandchildren! Or, perhaps you're trained in Reiki, massage, music therapy or some other specialty and choose to share your skills. The heart of volunteering in hospice is simply spending time together; time both you and your patient will find rewarding, uplifting and inspiring.

We cannot do all that we do without our volunteers. We treasure their generosity and their presence in the lives of those we serve. Volunteers are truly special people and also vital members of our clinical team. We look forward to our volunteers joining together with us to improve the quality of life for our patients and families.
