About

Volunteers do not necessarily have the time; they just have the heart.~Elizabeth Andrew~

Provide companionship and practical support to hospice patients and their caregivers. Patient support volunteers are matched 1:1 with patients who they visit in their homes on an ongoing basis.

Hospice care focuses on comfort and quality of life when a person has a life expectancy of six months or less. Volunteers are an essential part of our care team.

Ideal candidates are:

  • Comfortable meeting new people
  • Comfortable with death and dying
  • Able to give 2-4 hours of service each week
  • Able to transport themselves to patient's homes throughout the Metro area

No medical experience necessary. We will train you.
