The National Hospice and Palliative Care Organization reports that approximately 400,000 hospice volunteers contribute more than 18 million hours per year.

Why are Volunteers important?
Hospice volunteers are the heart of Hospice and among its most valuable resources. They can bring companionship to people who are on our program and respite and support to the caregiver and other family members. Volunteers are drawn from every age group and background. All Hospice Volunteers are committed to making a difference in the lives of their neighbors.

My family and I would like to extend our heartfelt thanks and gratitude to each and everyone of the wonderful people who cared for my husband. He was always treated with devoted and kind hands and was made as comfortable and pain free as possible.
 
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for getting my mom into the Hospice INN. I had no idea there was such a beautiful place filled with beautiful, compassionate and caring people. My husband and I, and many members of my family were in complete awe at the care my mother received.
