Hospice Volunteers

Are you looking for a way to make a difference in someone's life? We are always seeking individuals who are interested in learning more about becoming a hospice volunteer. Hospice volunteers are a vital part of the care and compassion that we provide to patients and their families. Many of our volunteers state that they find hospice service fulfilling and a privilege.

Hospice volunteers can provide different types of support, based on their interests, talents and abilities. Some volunteers work directly with patient care, providing much-needed respite breaks to family members, running errands, and lending emotional support and companionship. Other volunteers are called to the mission of hospice by assisting with fundraising efforts, special projects and clerical work that supports clinical services and patient care.

Whatever your interest, whatever your passion, there is a place for you to help. We offer volunteer training that provides in-depth education about the end-of-life process, care and comfort measures, and the goals of hospice. Contact us today to learn more about this rewarding opportunity to help those in your community.
