Join the Care Partners Board!
A not-for-profit Hospice and Palliative Care Service
Care Partners is a community-based, not-for-profit hospice serving the Portland Metropolitan area for the past 39 years. We provide quality, individualized, "boutique" level palliative and hospice services to over 400 patients and their families each year. Care Partners is a member of the Oregon Nonprofit Hospice Alliance (www.onhanetwork.org).
Care Partners is dedicated to shaping the future of end-of-life care in Oregon. We are working with partners across the state on a new and innovative approach to preserving and developing the unique not-for-profit model for hospice care in Oregon.
In a health care landscape dominated by corporate interests, Care Partners remains focused on the core values of volunteerism, service, compassionate care, and changing how Oregonians live out their final days. We are looking for individuals who share our passion for excellence and are willing to assist us in our relentless pursuit to make a significant difference in the lives of patients and families coping with serious illnesses in the home; long-term care, and community setting.
If you have a desire to serve as a member of a dedicated team of professionals and have expertise in one of the following professional fields, we invite you to apply for a position as a member of the Care Partners Board of Directors:
- human resources
- business administration
- medicine and health care
- geriatrics and long-term care
- grants, fundraising and development
- nonprofit alliances (shared services)

In addition to attending 4-6 meetings a year, board members periodically work on committees, projects and events, contributing approximately 10-30 hours of time over a one-year period. All meetings are currently held by Zoom due to the pandemic, but we hope to hold in person meetings in the future at our new office in the Cedar Mill area. Meetings may be attended via video or audio conferencing if unable to attend in person in the future with prior notice.
As a board member you will receive a thorough orientation to Medicare; hospice and palliative care; organizational by-laws, and the responsibilities of a non-profit board member. You will have the opportunity to work side by side with amazing people who are making the world a better place and contributing to the health of our community.

Our unwavering mission guides our Board of Directors and staff to continually improve and profoundly enhance the services we provide to all people facing a life limiting illness.
"Our mission is to provide compassionate palliative , end-of- life care with focus and distinction to support the quality of life of the patients, families and community we serve."
At one of the most emotional and intimate times of your life, highly experienced professional staff and trained volunteers will be there to walk with you, respect your choices and help you retain control of your end-of-life care.
What families say about Care Partners (formerly Hospice of Washington County):
"You dear folks are as close to angels on earth as we will see. Thank you so much for the care, concern and comfort you gave "Mary" and us. I don’t know what we would have done without you."
"I believe the people at Hospice improved the quality of my father’s life 10 thousand fold were he or we to have tried to do it on our own. From the Shower Aide to the Volunteers, to the Nurses to the Social Workers every single person made my father feel like a priority, never an inconvenience and put purpose and meaning into every moment he had left."
"Most amazing was the process from the point of initializing hospice care to the moment when she passed. Being the primary caretaker, I had all the resources I needed both physically and emotionally."
"I just wish we had called hospice sooner."
The hospice philosophy of care recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one as well. Our specially-trained volunteers bring comfort and peace to patients and families in many ways. They provide companionship to patients in their homes, skilled nursing facilities, and assisted living communities. 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.
