About

Kaiser Permanente Hospice volunteers provide support to families and patients in Vancouver and the whole Clark County area. Your service will have profound impact at a time when a person is nearing the end of their life, when heartfelt one-on-one care is crucial.

Kaiser Hospice Volunteers assist family caregivers up to 4 hours/week who are caring for a terminally ill loved one in their home. Volunteers keep patients safe and comfortable while the family caregivers gets a break.

Volunteers may be asked to help with one or more of the following: spend time with patients and their families, offer support and encouragement; assist the patient/family in carrying out errands; assist Hospice families with light household tasks; assist patients with their memoirs, write letters, share a good book or movie. Arrange your own visit schedule in consultation with the hospice patient and family.
