Volunteer at Varco Hospice

There is quite a bit of misconception about hospice.  Many individuals do not understand the who, what, when, and where of hospice.  To help folks get more familiar with hospice We have compiled a list of commonly asked questions to help educate and inform people in a way that makes them feel confident in making decisions about their care.

Volunteer at the Leading Hospice Care Provider in Houston, TX

At Varco Hospice Care, we believe in joining hands to create change. 

While our medical personnel and care team have an essential role to play in hospice care, YOU and YOUR time are pivotal in making a difference.

Spend your time making a difference

Whether you are free for 30 minutes a day or have hours of free time; we ask you to invest in a purpose that bears unsurpassable returns – end of life care. 

As our patients battle against chronic and terminal illnesses, we need your help in alleviating their pain, helping them relax, and forgot their woes for the remaining time. 

Hop in for a quick chat with our patients or stay to play a game of Scrabble, choose your sort of activity in home hospice care, and make them smile.
