Thank you for your interest in Kindred Hospice. We would love to have you join our professional health care team serving as a Patient Volunteer.
Come join our hospice team and contribute to enriching lives. We are seeking people with compassion, dedication, and a commitment to easing the end of life journey for patients and their families/caregivers. Training is provided. Be prepared for a rich experience where you will get back so much more than you give!
We are looking for people from diverse backgrounds, age 18 and over, in Whitman and Latah counties. We are in special need of volunteers who can serve outlying communities such as Potlatch, Deary, Kendrick/Juliaetta, Palouse, Colfax, St. John and Garfield. It is not required that you have a vehicle, but you will be expected to travel on your own to meet with patients.
We cannot accommodate large group volunteer opportunities who wish to have patient care experience.
We strive to make your volunteer experience meaningful and flexible with your schedule.
Applicants should be available for one year after training.
