Welcome to the HOSPICE CARE ASSOCIATION of North West Tasmania Inc.
Hospice Care Association of North West Tasmania Inc. is an organisation that provides volunteers to assist people through the progression of their life limiting illness and enable them to maintain a dignified lifestyle in the environment of their choice.
Hospice Care volunteers provide a home based support service.
While skilled professional staff care for terminally ill patients, Hospice volunteers provide support and companionship to both clients and their families.
Our volunteers, young and old, come from all walks of life and bring to our organisation a diverse range of life skills. Highly motivated, all must undergo National Police Checks every 3 years (paid for by the Association) and complete a comprehensive training program. Volunteers are hand picked for their depth of understanding of the needs of the very ill, their families and carers.
