Hospice West Parry Sound visiting volunteers are part of an overall end-of-life plan. Your loved one can be matched one-on-one with a trained volunteer who has successfully completed a 30 hour palliative training course and submitted to a rigorous screening process. Our Hospice volunteers become integral and valued members of your health care team. Visit our "What We Offer" page for more services.
