Volunteers Are the Heart of Hospice. . . . How can I help?

FIRST CHOICE HOSPICE OF UTAH Needs You!
Hospice volunteers are men and women (age 18 and older) who have a sincere desire to help others make the most of life. First Choice Hospice of Utah Volunteers are prepared for their role with a free, comprehensive training program. No previous experience in the medical field is necessary. Through training, hospice volunteers learn how to give the gift of the heart in providing emotional support, companionship and respite care to our patients and families.
