Volunteers are the heart and soul of Beaumont Hospice. They are essential in helping patients and families cope with emotional, social, and spiritual challenges during the late stages of life. Volunteers may visit patients in their homes, hospitals, or in nursing homes. Volunteers have the opportunity to reach out to patients in many unique and rewarding ways. During visits, volunteers may listen, talk with, play cards, or watch a movie together. By offering your presence and support, you can make a significant difference in how a person experiences the final stages of life.

There are a few ways in which volunteers can be instrumental with pediatric patients. One is to provide companionship to the patient. A volunteer might read them stories, polish their fingernails, play games and whatever other activity the child is interested in/able to do. This not only provides some variety to the patient, but frees up the parent(s) to tend to any other children or responsibilities in the home. Another function of a pediatric hospice volunteer is to provide respite so the parent(s) can leave the house. They may have other children to pick up from school or take to activities. You might occupy the patient’s siblings so they don’t feel neglected while parents are caring for the patient. Also, volunteers are needed to assist at the annual pediatric-only memorial service.

We care for both adult and pediatric patients. You choose who you are comfortable visiting.

New Volunteer Trainings are held at various locations to accommodate applicants from all over our service area! Contact Justine Galat at to inquire when the next training will be held near you!
