Hospice East began over thirty years ago with a group of volunteers. Today, volunteers continue to be at the heart of Hospice East. Our volunteers are a family within our larger Hospice East family, providing support to our patients and our office staff. These wonderful individuals are some of the most compassionate and giving people that we know.
