We assist in supporting patients during their final hours of the actively dying stage. The goal is that no one dies alone. Volunteers help in creating peaceful surroundings, sharing in silence with the patient and family. We offer a calm and peaceful presence, or possibly being an active listener if that is what is needed. It is important to provide relief to caregivers or family members or to listen to family share stories about their loved one and lastly you can help the family say good-by to their loved ones.
