What is a Hospice Volunteer?
Hospice volunteers are exceptional people. They donate their time and efforts to provide care and comfort for someone with a life-limiting illness – a labor of love that requires a special person with just the right touch. They have a passion for helping others and make a profound difference in the lives of the patients, families, and communities we are privileged to serve.

LHC Group was founded on a fundamental principle – it’s all about helping people. It continues to serve as our mission statement and guiding light as we nurture a unique company culture of family and community. Volunteers are a vital part of that culture. In each and every community we serve, we are dedicated to being more than just clinicians and support staff – we are friends, neighbors, and family.

That’s our commitment to the people we serve, and it’s the standard every member of the LHC Group family – volunteer or otherwise – is dedicated to living up to each and every day.

I have a passion and a commitment to serve God by serving others. If I can help somebody as I pass along, my living shall not be in vain.

-Gwendolyn Allen | Christus Hospice, Alexandria, LA

My parents instilled in me the importance of giving. Luke 12:48 reads, “To whom much is given, much will be required.” My tack in calls lift spirits – the patients, caregivers, and mine!

-Kenneth Douglas | Deaconess Hospice, Brookhaven, MS

Being able to allow a patient to vent or giving a caregiver a much-deserved break makes me feel like I’m making a difference.

-Karina Tedeschi | AtlantiCare Hospice, Egg Harbor Township, NJ

Helping patients and their families have the best end-of-life care experience is very important and often goes overlooked.

-Brooklyn Bowen | Suncrest Hospice, New Tazewell, TN

My wife lost her aunt approximately 2 years ago. She passed away alone, and it really stuck with me. I couldn’t be there for her, but I wanted to be there for others who may have been in her situation. Volunteering for hospice is a way I can give back and keep the infirm from being alone.
