Informational Sessions about becoming a hospice volunteer are going on throughout the month of November!

In conjunction with Hospice & Palliative Care Awareness Month, High Peaks Hospice is offering informative talks about becoming a Hospice Volunteer. High Peaks Hospice serves families in all of Warren and Essex Counties plus parts of Franklin, Hamilton and St. Lawrence Counties. Volunteer opportunities are available throughout the region.

“ Volunteers comfort with their presence. One does not need to know all the right words to say, but the ability to just be present.” – Gina Davis

Our Volunteer Coordinators, Maureen Losch and Tracee Carson, will explain the training volunteers receive and the opportunities that hospice volunteers have to provide support to both families and to the organization.

“Our volunteers frequently share that they get as much out of volunteering, if not more, than the patients they serve.” – Tracee Carson, High Peaks Hospice Volunteer Coordinator
