Training sessions covered the philosophy of Hospice, team building, listening and communication skills, confidentiality, family dynamics, concepts of spiritual, and bereavement support for patients and families.

Hospice volunteers offer warm hearts, listening ears, and compassion to our patients and their families. Patient care volunteers serve patients and their families by offering respite, friendly visits, writing letters, running errands, and so much more. Besides working directly with patients Hospice volunteers also assist with fundraising, music therapy, and office tasks. Volunteers are a very important part of the Hospice team.

Angel Hospice has been serving Macon County as your local Hospice provider for over 15 years. Angel Hospice is a not-forprofit under the direction of Angel Medical Center. Hospice offers comfort, dignity, and compassion to those with life limiting illnesses through a holistic approach, enhancing the lives of patients and their families. Angel Hospice also offers grief support groups for those who have experienced a loss.
