About

Main Line Health is looking for dedicated volunteers who are seeking to make a difference. Hospice Volunteers give their time and presence to patients and families during the final stages of a terminal illness. Hospice Volunteer are like having a very good neighbor- providing weekly visits to patients, giving caregivers much needed respite to run errands, make appointments, or simply to take a breath and break from the 24/7 of caring for a loved one. They listen and reminisce with a patient in their home, nursing home or residence. They may prepare a meal, run errands to the grocery store, drug store, post office, or make telephone calls to home bound patients and families. Bereavement volunteers support a patient's loved one with phone calls and halping with mailings. We also have opportunities for office volunteers to assist with clerical activities, programs and special events.Do you have a special talent or certification?
