Description

Providence Hospice of Seattle volunteers serve patients and families throughout King and Pierce Counties, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.). Volunteers play a key role in their own communities providing support and comfort to those who are facing terminal illness.

Hospice volunteers provide non-clinical patient care and family support, assist with grief support services, and contribute administrative and operational support.

We offer opportunities to gain new skills, uphold client agency and autonomy in pursuit of their goals, and empower you to be an informed advocate. All roles support our core values of compassion, justice, dignity, integrity, and excellence . Our team will help you discover your strengths and guide you toward your best role. Comprehensive training is tailored to each position to ensure you are confident and comfortable in your responsibilities. Volunteers are required to be up-to-date with COVID-19 vaccinations.
