• Be a Central Indiana Hospice Volunteer

    Did you know that 76 percent of adults who volunteer say they feel healthier and 78 percent say it helps lower their stress levels? With those kinds of stats, why not be an Indianapolis hospice volunteer with Paradigm Health? It does a body good.

    Hospice volunteers are an essential part of our team. They are specially trained individuals, who provide assistance to patients, their families and the hospice team. They do not provide direct patient care, give medications or make medical decisions. As an invaluable resource, they bring a friendly smile, warm conversation, a hand to hold or offer a welcome respite for a family.
