Hospice volunteers are an invaluable asset to the dying. Most Hospices deal with children's cases, now.
Check in your local area for a Hospice service. You will receive volunteer training, and you can pick your cases.
Not everyone can deal with death. The fact that this book touched you could indicate that you are a person who might understand and be able to help comfort not only the dying patient, but their families as well.
Hospice does not only deal with the actively dying patient. The quality of a patient's life in their last months, weeks and days is a high priority. That's where the volunteers come in. You may read a book to someone, hold their hand while they tell you about their life, or just be a familiar face to them when no one else is available.
God Bless you. You will receive much more than you can ever give. You will receive a feeling of worth that no amount of money can buy.
