Kindred Hospice - Our Care Matters

Are you an enthusiastic singer?Do you play guitar or ukulele like a star (or at least passably)?
Are you crazy about coloring and love helping others learn art?
Do you have the gift of gab and love using it? Are you just a fantastic hand-massage giver?

We've got a perfect place for you to put those skills to use!

Kindred Hospice is looking for talented and thoughtful folks who can make the end-of-life journey a special experience for our hospice patients.

Dedicate an hour or two of your week to providing companionship and sharing your skills at a facility or in the home of a hospice patient.

Kindred's hospice philosophy values volunteers as an integral part of the care team, and we know you are reading this now because you share our values. Help us encircle our patients and families with compassionate support.

We ask our volunteers to commit for 2-8 hours a month and offer very flexible scheduling. We're committed to giving you the tools you need to care for the individuals you visit.

All volunteer positions require a Physical and two step TB test, a fingerprinting background check, and a drug screen - paid for by Kindred.

You make a living by what you get. You make a life by what you give
