Hospice volunteers help patients, families, and their caregivers by offering emotional support at the end of life. Great joy can be found in helping someone live life to its fullest; for as long as life lasts. Volunteers offer an array of services, including:

  • Companionship: spending one-on-one time with an individual on Hospice Services. Reading to them, playing cards/board games, looking at photo albums, talking about their life/family/interests, doing crafts - overall, just visiting.
  • Respite: spending time with a client on Hospice Services so the caregiver can leave the home to run errands, attend appointments, get some rest, do lawn work, visit family/friends, etc. Could be ongoing or a one-time request.
  • Light Housekeeping: assist a Hospice client with tidying up a room, vacuuming, laundry, dishes, light housework. Occasionally there may be a request for meal prep, such as preparing pureed meals.
  • Story Catcher: life story recording for Hospice clients to provide touching stories to their loved ones.
  • Other opportunities as needed.

Volunteers get to choose their assignments! Becoming a hospice volunteer could be the most rewarding experience of your life. Contact us today to learn more about this unique opportunity.
