We are looking for special people with a hospice heart. Acting as a hospice volunteer is an amazing gift that you can give not only others, but that you can give yourself.
Opportunities as a volunteer include:
- Spending time with patients and their families. This can be talking, reading, playing music, or simply just being present.
- Sharing your unique talents - musician, artist, storyteller, anything that you feel can ease those we serve
- Providing massage therapy, reiki, and other holistic modalities (licensed and certification required)
- Administrative office work and event planning
Just tell us how you would like to volunteer with hospice patients and families and we will find you the right spot. Please join us today.
