Gentiva Hospice of Seattle Volunteers make an incredible difference and impact lives by being an essential part of our interdisciplinary team, bringing support to our patients and families during time of need.

About

Make a difference and help to improve someone's quality of life, by providing compassionate presence and care to Kindred Hospice patients and their families in the Seattle/King County area....or by offering administrative support to our office team!

Come join our team! Volunteers are an essential part of our dynamic interdisciplinary team (of nurses, doctors, spiritual care providers, social workers and home health aides). Kindred Hospice of Seattle Volunteers may serve in a multitude of ways, including offering patient companionship (such as reading a book, engaging in conversation, actively listening by the bedside, playing card games, singing or holding someone's hand). Volunteers may also provide caregiver/family respite, or engaging in arts/crafts activity. Volunteers may also assist with special events such as memorial services and veteran pinning ceremonies for our hospice patients and families.


Kindred Hospice of Seattle Patient Care volunteers drive to visit and offer support to hospice patients and families. Whereas our Administrative volunteers come into the office to assist in administrative tasks.

We provide free extensive training and ongoing education and support for our volunteers. We value and nurture our volunteers as essential members of our interdisciplinary team. We seek a diverse volunteer team that reflects our multicultural community. Volunteer trainings occur in our office in the Northgate area. Our patients and families are located throughout the Seattle/King County area.
