lourdes1 300PADUCAH, Ky. (10/2/13) – Lourdes Hospice is recruiting volunteers who may bring comfort and compassion to patients and their families.
 
Volunteers may give of their time and talents in a variety of ways including: patient care and support, administrative and office support, special services, speaker’s bureau, special events and team approach and training.
 
“Volunteers are a vital part of the Lourdes Hospice team,” says Kay Williams, Lourdes Hospice/HomeCare Director. “They can provide companionship and emotional support to the patient and family, helping in the home and offering respite to the caregiver.”
