Our volunteers are the heart of Prairie Hospice Society. Volunteers receive comprehensive training in order to offer non-medical support to people living with a terminal illness.
What is hospice care?
Hospice care is meant for people in the final stages of a terminal illness and provides support for people to die painlessly and with dignity, ensuring both the people receiving the care and their loved ones get the resources they need to allow that to happen.
The Prairie Hospice Society community is brimming with stories about people we care for, our volunteers, and the work we’re doing.
“You were all so wonderful to my mom and being in a different city made things more challenging for me. Knowing that she had a support network that could take care of the daily things was really a huge stress relief for me. 😊” – Kevin Mitchell
“The respect, compassion, genuine caring and kindness shown to our mother, Jane, during the last weeks of her life were remarkable. The Prairie Hospice volunteer not only attended to Jane’s needs but also provided thoughtful, meaningful support for us, her family. Please continue doing the necessary work that provides peace and comfort to those we care about.” —Debi Coffin
"I have found volunteering with Prairie Hospice to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Individuals and families have welcomed me into their homes and lives, and I am forever grateful to have shared their journeys. It has given me the opportunity to grow by experiencing different ways in which individuals face end-of-life issues." —Pam Reilly-Bruce
"When my dad rapidly became ill, we realized added assistance was required, especially given his desire to stay in his own home. Prairie Hospice offered our family much needed hope and help. Dad lived out his last months grateful for those he met through Prairie Hospice. He nicknamed them 'his guardian angels,' and to us all, they were." —Brynn Boback-Lane
“I would have to scramble for rides, that’s for sure. Or my daughter would have to take time off work and it’s not always easy finding someone. People work. Going by taxi is expensive, particularly if you had to go a few times per week.”
“Thank you for partnering myself with my client. It is so good for both of us.”
“Thank you for being there for our Dad when we, his children, could not be. Prairie Hospice provides wonderful, helpful and necessary services.”
“It is a fantastic organization and I am very lucky to have people willing to volunteer to help our family during this stressful time. Thank you! Thank you! THANK YOU!!!”
“I am so grateful for Prairie Hospice and the care, physical and emotional, that I have received. Thank you!”
“Thanks so much – if not for my volunteer, my experience of chemo would have been much less easy. She has made a total difference to my weeks. It relieved me greatly to have my groceries bought regularly.”
