About

Why Volunteer for Care Partners?

The hospice philosophy of care recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one. Our specially-trained volunteers bring comfort and peace to patients and families in many ways. They provide respite for family members allowing them to work or run errands. They help with simple tasks around the home. They provide companionship to patients wherever they call home. This could be in a family home, skilled nursing facility, adult foster home or independent living community. Whether you elect to visit patients, share a specific talent, or assist office staff we value your gifts of time and talent.

As a Volunteer for Care Partners you can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they’re going through. Our volunteers share our calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most.

Our main office is located in Hillsboro, OR and we have opportunties for placement with patients throughout the Portland metropolitan region. Volunteers must complete extensive training to work with patients and families as well as complete a background check, drug screen and TB test.

Our next training dates are Saturday, October 14th, 2017 & Saturday, October 21st, 2017.
