Community Home Health & Hospice
When you volunteer, you reap benefits beyond helping others. Respite volunteers are essential members of the hospice team. These volunteers sit, read, and visit with hospice patients at their place of residence allowing the caregivers time to run errands, go to appointments, have lunch with friends, etc. We have an on-line and hands on training to prepare you for a rewarding experience.
Please complete the volunteer application on our website. Once it's been reviewed a staf member will contact you.
