You can be the positive difference in someone's life!
Hospice patients often need a friendly face to brighten their days. By listening to their life stories, playing checkers, running errands, or even sitting quietly with them and holding their hand, you can dramatically improve their mood as well as provide necessary help.
Sharing your talents can also make a positive difference! Playing an instrument, knitting, making crafts, or even using your handyman skills, are all appreciated. Also, if you enjoy celebrating birthdays and holidays, we have a place for you.
At Compassionate Care Hospice, we provide specialized care and support for our patients and their families. Volunteers play a vital role in our services. Volunteers help with office work, visiting patients, assisting with patient activitie,s and providing valuable "break time" for families and primary caregivers.
Compassionate Care Hospice’s volunteer programs are supervised by a dedicated Volunteer Coordinator who provides hospice orientation and training. A criminal background check & TB screening are also required to participate in the volunteer program.
