Are you seeking a rewarding Volunteer experience? Are you eager to help others through the gift of your time and talents (whatever they may be)?

Our hospice patients are in need of individuals like you!

Grace Hospice Volunteers provide a variety of services including companionship, breaks for caregivers, running errands, providing music, reading, crafting, playing games and a wide variety of other activities.

Are you seeking to align with a reputable and caring organization? Look no further!

The mission of Grace Hospice is for each employee and Volunteer to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.

Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. It is a program for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame. The hospice philosophy focuses on comfort care not curative care. The goal of hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home, a facility, or the home of a loved one through the end of life.
