About

Become a volunteer with Good Shepherd Hospice and you will find out that you get back as much as you give. You will have an opportunity to develop a personal relationship with our patients by supporting them in the last stage of their lives. By sharing your time, you will affirm to them and they to you that every day counts and that small acts of kindness can have powerful results.

In order to volunteer, we require an 8-hour training, background check, TB test, and reference check (all provided by GSH hospice). As a volunteer your responsibilites include sharing your time with others, documenting the time you spend and attending on-going education opportunities to develop your base of knowledge and skills even further.

If this sounds like something you would like to be involved in, we would love to talk to you about the opportunities available for volunteering. You will not be required to have any medical skills or perform any tasks outside of your range of knowledge. The best qualifications you can have are a sense of compassion and a sense of understanding that the final days of a person's life are just as important as their first.
