Hospice volunteers enhance quality of life and help reduce the burden of caregiving. They are generally available to provide different types of support to patients and their loved ones including running errands, preparing light meals, staying with a patient to give family members a break, lending emotional support and companionship to patients and family members, and helping out with light housekeeping.
The pet therapy volunteer is responsible for providing therapeutic non-medical support as needed to the Hospice patient and family on a volunteer basis. The intention of the pet therapy volunteer is to help relieve stress, provide comfort and increase the patient and family's sense of well-being.
Evidence suggests that music therapy has a beneficial effect on the physical, psychological, emotional, and spiritual needs of hospice patients and their families. Music therapy studies in this area have looked at the use of music therapy in long term care facilities, inpatient hospices, and private homes.
