Project Details

Make a positive difference in the life of an actively dying hospice patient. A vigil volunteer receives special training at Brookdale Hospice to become part of the patient's holistic team-- Doctor, RN, Chaplain, Social Worker and you! As a Vigil Volunteer, you provide comfort and create a peaceful presence for the patient at bedside when the patient's death is imminent.

Brookdale Hospice provides the patient an individualized program of physical, emotional, and practical care with emphasis on pain control and symptom management. Hospice care represents a full spectrum of care designed to respect the dignity of an individual facing a terminal illness. Our program is a reflection of our spirit of caring, because we emphasize comfort, dignity and respect. We believe that centering our focus on both the patient and the family enables us to provide the best care.
