What We Do
Volunteers have a critical role in providing exceptional care in hospice. It’s been said a thousand times that “Volunteers are the heart of hospice” and it's entirely true. Hospice volunteers are an integral part of our team and are invaluable assets to our patients and families as well as our staff. Ethos Care offers extensive training and support to all volunteers regardless of how they may help.
