- Assisting with clerical duties, such as answering phones, helping with data entry and other tasks as needed
- Providing caregiver relief, which could include running errands, such as picking up groceries or walking a dog, or helping with other tasks, as appropriate

Volunteer requirements
- Must be 18 or older
- Be able to dedicate four hours a week to hospice care

- Attend information presentation and a 2-day patient care orientation class
