About

Compassion, empathy, openheartedness, and presence are some of the basic needs for a hospice patient and their loved ones.

Your gift as a volunteer is not just about how much time is spent with the dying, but the quality of that human contact with them. In that one hour a week, there is someone who will receive comforting companionship, instead of loneliness and isolation.

Hospice Services of Massachusetts is looking for volunteers to walk with our patients on their path to a new journey. We are looking for volunteers for direct patient care, arts/crafts, and office support. We service all of Boston and surrounding areas - Chelsea, Everett, Milton, and from Burlington to Newburyport. No asking to travel out of your comfort area. Training is provided.
