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. Additionally, our Bereavement Program seeks volunteers to support the annual Camp Embracing Memories for young people dealing with loss.

Administrative Support

As an Administrative Support Volunteer, you work behind-the-scenes, assisting with assembling patient admission packets, filing, mailing, clerical tasks and special projects.
