Volunteers in our office help with many daily duties that include things such as: filing, data entry, managing admission documents, helping with scheduling, helping with special events, etc. Our office volunteers work closely with our staff to better assist our clinical staff in bringing the gift of hospice to our patients. You will also learn the process of hospice from admission to death and all it entails. This takes place in our office during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 8 AM-5 PM). Our volunteer coordinator will give any letters of recommendation, reference letters, etc. that may help with further employment or education. We have a very relaxed and welcoming environment in our office that any volunteer would feel comfortable working in.

Most volunteers feel personally rewarded through offering their time, energy and compassion when they see how much they are able to help patients and families. Further benefits frequently experienced by our volunteers include:
Greater self-knowledge from insights gained from relationships with patients, their families and from the hospice volunteer training.
Spiritual growth from supporting a person through the final days while increasing the awareness of their own sense of spiritual values.
