Sunnyside Hospice and Palliative Care offers several types of opportunities for volunteering. Our Hospice volunteer duties vary from telephone conversations to visiting and providing activities and companionship in the patient’s homes, as well as providing comfort and support during bereavement and beyond. It’s the little things that we do that makes the most profound effect on the quality of our patients’ and their families’ lives.
