Volunteer Hospice Services

a) There is a difference between Volunteer Hospice Services and medical Hospice, which means that individuals with life limiting illnesses as well as those preparing for the end of life are both eligible for volunteer hospice services.
b) Volunteer services are provided free of charge by highly trained volunteers.
c) There aren’t enough volunteers to meet the current need for hospice services in Hancock, Piscataquis and northern Penobscot and Somerset counties.
