Patient enjoying quality time with volunteer
Our compassionate volunteer visits weekly with hospice patient to ensure he continues with the quality of life he wants to have.

Help a veteran get her story validated. Offer respite to a caregiver. Run errands or walk the family dog. If you are a compassionate listener, you may wish to help a terminally ill patient or their caregiver. Some like to have you read them a favorite book or listen to their favorite music. Some may ask you to sit quietly and just be at the bedside offering your presence. Hospice is providing comfort care and living fully - not just dying. All of these are ways you can become involved! Screening, background check and TB test required. Free training is provided in exchange for your 1 year commitment to serving Hospice patients and families 4 hours/week. Please visit website at: www.cascadehealth.org to learn more about Hospice and access a Volunteer Application. Cascade Health opened the Pete Moore Hospice House in February 2017 - a beautiful setting for those in need of specialized care serving all of Lane County. Volunteer opportunities at this beautiful location are available as well.
