Hospice companion volunteers visit with our patients in their homes or nursing homes. These visits provide companionship to our patients or their family members much needed relief to take some time for self-care. Common activities our volunteers do with our patients include

  • Reading to the patient
  • Sharing stories
  • Singing to the patient
  • Sharing stories
  • Taking walks or just getting the patient outside on a nice day
  • Playing games
  • Home patients can sometimes use additional support including light house work, meal prep, or yardwork


In our Volunteer Orientation class you will learn some of the challenges that face our patients and families and learn interventions in how you can bring qualities of life and compassionate care to those in need. As an AccentCare hospice volunteer you will learn about AccentCare philosophy of care, communicating with patients and families, family dynamics, spiritual care and the grief process.
