Our community is at its best when we come together to help others in a time of need. At Pioneer Valley Hospice & Palliative Care, 35 trained volunteers give their time, attention, and compassion to help people facing the end of life live as fully as possible. Our volunteers specialize in various areas of service, including direct patient care and administrative support in our office. Our community is a stronger, more unified place because of their service.

April 21-27 is National Volunteer Week, and hospice volunteers create lasting memories of comfort and care for the patients and families they serve every day. Across the U.S., more than 430,000 hospice volunteers give over 19 million hours of service every year. Every single volunteer deserves our appreciation and grateful acknowledgment.

I encourage others to learn more about hospice care and services or consider volunteering to support their community members in need by contacting Pioneer Valley Hospice & Palliative Care at 413-774-2400.
