Bush ., challenged each of us when he said, "We want to be a nation that serves goals larger than self. My call is for every American to commit at least two years - 4,000 hours over the rest of your lifetime - to the service of your neighbors and your nation." Hospice, as a program of care for the terminally ill and their families, has, from the beginning, valued the role of the volunteer. Medicare certified hospice organizations such as Rice Hospice are mandated by Medicare to include volun- teers on the team of care. Rice Hospice volunteers, in particular, donated 14,486 hours last year as they made visits to patients and families, to hospice bereaved, and volunteered in the hospice offices. Rice Hospice is both high-tech and high-touch, combining the best of computer technology for accuracy and timeliness in charting, yet high-touch as both staff and volunteers make personal visits to hospice patients whether they live at home, in the nursing home, or are hospitalized. Hospice volunteers are special friends who have made a commitment to spend time with their assigned patients and families offering, among other things, a confidential listening ear, a hand massage, respite time for the caregiver, running grocery errands, or maybe participation in a good game of cribbage. Their volunteer work also extends beyond the life of the patient as they offer bereave- ment support to the family by making personal visits, writing supportive letters, and serving at the spring and fall Memorial Services. Hospice volunteers are encouraged to find their own niche in what they feel is most comfortable within the realm of giving. A volunteer might feel most comfortable visiting hospice patients in the nursing Hospice Volunteer, Audre) cupboards in the hospice inpatient Rice Hospice offers a 16-hour each spring and fall for indMduals in the who are interested in becoming home, giving a wheelchair ride in nursing home activities.
