Volunteer training classes may be virtual, in-person, or a mix depending on the individual need. For volunteers who plan to visit patients, some facilities are beginning to welcome volunteers again. Please call us to learn about specific roles and the safety precautions that are being made.
Few things lift the spirits of our elders quicker than being around youthful energy! Give back to your community as a Hospice Companion Volunteer and earn service hours, do an internship, or gain experience for your resume.
We can't teach compassion, but if you're a compassionate person, we can train you to help our patients live out the final chapter of their lives in comfort and dignity. AseraCare Hospice seeks caring individuals to spend an average of 1-2 hours per week visiting our terminally ill patients and their families. Volunteers spend sacred time together with patients and families by simply accompanying them during their final journey. Companions offer patients a calming presence, deep compassion, and generous listening. Volunteers play an important role in providing social support and decreasing isolation that can often occur for the terminally ill.
Volunteers are provided free training and TB test and can work flexible hours that suit their individual schedules. We serve facilities throughout Milwaukee and its suburbs including Brookfield, Cudahy, Oak Creek, Freedonia, Cedarburg, Pewaukee, Sussex, Watertown, Glendale, Kenosha, Racine, Lake Geneva, Pleasant Prairie, St Francis and more -- so volunteers can serve within 10-15 miles of their home.
Volunteer opportunities are available throughout Southeastern Wisconsin including Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Waukesha, Racine, Kenosha and Walworth, Dodge, Washington, and Walworth Counties.
There is an opportunity near you!
