Threshold Singers is an all-women movement for those who wish to share the gift of voice with others. These volunteers participate in regular trainings as part of a national Threshold Choir organization and then travel in groups of 2-4 to patient bedsides to offer songs of support.
Helping to care for our patients and families is a critical role played
by our volunteers. These positions are some of the most challenging and
rewarding volunteer opportunities at Rainbow Hospice and Palliative
Care. Volunteers in Patient Care and Family Support provide in-home
services to patients currently being served by Rainbow Hospice.
Because of the direct patient and family interaction, all of these positions require Patient Care and Family Support volunteers to go through specialized Patient Care Training. This process teaches you about hospice and terminal illness and helps prepare volunteers to interact with and support our patients and families.
