Hospice Volunteers

In addition, the Jewish Hospice and Chaplaincy Network professionals provide consolation and assistance to chronic and terminally ill clients and their families. They make regular visits (either at the client’s home, hospital or nursing home) to help community members maintain their dignity and enhance their quality of life throughout their remaining days.
