Did you know that in the U.S. hospice volunteers must be used in defined roles as per code of federal regulations 418.78? They are non-core members of the Interdisciplinary Group (IDG). An invaluable asset to any hospice team and support to patients and families navigating end-of-life care.

Don’t forget to acknowledge and thank your volunteers!
