Hospice patients and their families are in need of friendly volunteers to visit them. Volunteers spend time with patients to enhance their day. Volunteers might read a story, newspaper or read some jokes. Also, volunteers celebrate birthdays, play a game, sit with a patient outdoors, spend time connecting. Volunteers typically visit once a week, or once every other week. These volunteer visits support not only the patient but also the family.

Orientation and training are provided. Our Volunteer Team is full of amazing people who share the desire to help others. You will make the most amazing friends!

Be a compassionate phone visitor to a person with a life-limiting illness. Capital Caring Health needs dedicated volunteers to provide companionship and socialization to hospice patients.

Must be a good listener. May involve chatting, hearing life stories, reading to a patient.

Volunteers needed any day of the week. Volunteer will be asked to provide about 1- 2 hours a week.

Orientation and ongoing support provided. Come join a team of supportive professionals who value our volunteers tremendously. You will find a home here with the Alexandria Capital Caring Health Team.

Please contact Katherine Knoble at kknoble@capitalcaring.org or 703-333-6958 or 703-309-0289. Thank you.
