Sacred Heart Community Palliative Care Biography Service

Everyone has a story to tell, and for our palliative care patients, approaching the end of their life can prompt a desire to capture important memories. Our biography volunteers help capture the world as they lived it, and pass on a lasting reminder to family and friends of their loved one’s journey and experiences. From the opportunity to reflect on their life and share their story, to pass on important information and offer a tribute to loved ones – a biography brings a welcome affirmation of the value of each person’s life.

Volunteers will need to be compassionate listeners, available during business hours, computer literate, have a driver’s license and their own transport.

“I feel incredibly privileged to be able to do this,” says a current volunteer.
