Our Hospice Volunteer program is made up of a wonderful group of men and women from all walks of life. Many have experienced the loss of a loved one and can relate to the emotions and challenges hospice patients and families may be going through. We are always looking for new volunteers to join our team!
As a hospice volunteer, you may asked to do a variety of things, such as reading, playing music, writing journals or letters, recording memories, playing games, or simply being a silent presence. You can provide families and caregivers with a chance to get out, have lunch with a friend, watch a movie, run errands, take a walk, or simply stay home and take a leisurely bath or nap, or pay bills. Volunteers can also offer light housekeeping and assistance with laundry, gardening, and grief support.
The Hospice Volunteer program does not require a minimum monthly amount of hours and is quite flexible depending on the assignment you take.
We require all applicants to be willing to offer at least one year of service.
