Hospice provides compassionate care that focuses on comfort, quality, and support for individuals with terminal illness, their families, and caregivers.

What does it mean to be a Companion Volunteer? It could mean a lot of things depending on the patient that the volunteer is matched with. You will work one -on-one with the patient, and sometimes their family, Some examples of what volunteers have done in the past include: reading novels and/or the Bible to patients; writing letters; painting nails or doing hair; household tasks; wheelchair walks; accompanying patient to activities, events, or Chapel so that they are able to participate, if desired; socializing; playing games; reviewing pictures or videos; pet therapy; music therapy; massage therapy. Pet visitors also welcome!

Your talents, skills, and interests can help determine what you do.

Volunteers become certified through Optage Hospice's training program. Optage Hospice specializes in providing services to those with dementia; volunteers should be comfortable in working with those with dementia - training and continuing support will be provided.
