About

Are you looking for a rewarding expericence to "give back"? Life Choice Hospice is in need of caring volunteers to see patients in the Western Mass Area--especially East Longmeadow, Holyoke, Westfield, Chicopee, Springfield, Amherst and Hadley areas. No hospice experience is required. Free hospice training is provided!


Most of our volunteers provide companionship visits: reading to our patients, painting finger nails, praying, playing music, attending facility activities, playing games or cards, crafts, looking at flowers outside, holding their hand, sitting with them at mealtimes, etc... Some of our volunteers with special interests and training share their talents with our patients (massage therapy, music therapy, and veteran-to-veteran volunteering).
