About

One of life’s most rewarding experiences is to serve as a hospice volunteer. There are many misconceptions as to what hospice is all about and we hope to provide fulfilling volunteer experiences as well as education on what hospice is and how it can be a beneficial benefit to patients and familes. Catholic Hospice volunteers often experience times of joy, peace and heartwarming closeness with their patients. Because we truly value each day, we emphasize living every moment we have together. Catholic Hospice volunteers support our program through a variety of ways including: Patient Care - visitation, assisting patients with routine daily tasks (ie. writing letters, small errands, light meal preparation, etc.) and/or providing breaks for the caregivers.t Bereavement - contacting bereaved family members via written correspondence, telephone or home visits to offer support. Clerical - supporting administrative staff with clerical tasks such as telephone, filing, data entry and mailings. Fundraising - planning and implementation of fundraisers, serving as committee members for fundraising activities. Public Relations - staffing informational tables at community fairs in an effort to educate the public about hospice services.
