The editor:

St. Claire Hospice encourages members of the community to become involved in our Hospice Volunteer program.

Our volunteers provide services such as listening to a patient’s concerns, being a supportive presence, engaging in patients' hobbies, for example, playing a board game or discussing current events, telling other hospice staff the needs of the hospice patient, running errands or doing light housekeeping for patients, encouraging patients to tell their life stories, and providing time for the caregiver to take care of his/her self.

Many of our volunteers also engage in administrative work as well.

These duties include: data entry, mailings and photocopying, fundraising activities, and answering phone calls that come into the hospice.

If you are interested in this opportunity to participate, please contact volunteer coordinator, Amber Stamper CSW at 783-6887 or
