Volunteers are the backbone of the hospice team and have been the roots from which hospice has grown for hundreds of years. Volunteers may serve in many ways: companionship, connecting family to our community, providing physical care, running errands, helping with household chores, or doing behind the scenes work with our administrative team.

I have come to believe that some of the nicest people in the world come from Hospice of Missoula. Our hospice nurse was very knowledgeable, also patient and complete in her explanations. She provided great reassurance and encouragement. I was totally supported by Hospice of Missoula, personally as a family member, beyond all expectations. Hospice of Missoula provided medications and expert guidance to manage my loved one's pain and other symptoms. Excellent supplies, equipment, and advice were provided by Hospice of Missoula.>
