Hospice Volunteer Opportunities

Patient and Family Ambassador

As a Patient and Family Ambassador, you provide respite or companionship. You may read, play cards, write a letter or just have a conversation.

While providing respite, you stay with the patient to allow caregivers or loved ones the time to take care of themselves. This may be time to get a haircut, go to the grocery store or even a day-long outing with friends. Patient and Family Ambassadors typically visit patients two to four times a month.

11th hour Companion

As an 11th Hour Companion, you comfort patients in their last hours by taking shifts around the clock, sitting by their side. This presence ensures they are not alone or provides a reassuring presence to loved ones.

Bereavement Support

As a bereavement Support Volunteer, you assist with our 13-month follow up program. The volunteer makes supportive calls and visits with family members. Even better, as a bereavement caller you can work in the comfort of your own home!

Administrative Support

As an Administrative Support Volunteer, you work "behind-the-scenes." You will support the organization by assisting with mailings, filing and other clerical tasks and special projects.

Community Awareness

As a Community Awareness Volunteer, you assist with promotions and fundraising. Activities include Camp Embracing Memories, health fairs and public speaking engagements.
