Hospice Care Center
Providence Hospice and Home Care of Snohomish County
Providence Hospice & Home Care of Snohomish County is pleased to now offer a hospice care center to our community for needs at the end of life that are not able to be managed at home. Volunteers are a vital part of this service and can serve in a variety of ways. Volunteers must exhibit a calm presence and not be afraid to be with a patient or family at the end of life.
Are you willing to sit with a patient and/or their family at the hospice care center? Can you offer by straightening up the waiting area or family area? Are you willing to greet new arrivals to the Hospice Care Center?
Restrictions to be a Hospice Care Center Volunteer:
- you must be a minimum age of 21
- you must complete a volunteer training class and attend an additional 2-hour care center orientation
- You must be willing to sign up for a weekly scheduled shift of 3 hours. Volunteers are scheduled between 8:00 am - 8:00 pm, seven days a week.
We require that all volunteers for Providence Hospice & Home Care show proof of identification, proof of insurance, provide three names on application for a reference check, allow for a Washington State Patrol Criminal History/Background check, and sign a disclosure statement and confidentiality statement, along with other required paperwork. They must also have Flu Vaccination & TB testing which we provide at our office.

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.
Volunteers with Providence Hospice and HomeCare of Snohomish County help provide emotional and practical support to those who are facing a terminal illness. We serve patients and families throughout Snohomish county, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.) Volunteers can serve in their own community. Volunteers may help by providing companionship for patients, respite for caregivers, transportation to appointments, assistance with errands such as grocery shopping, and much more. Complementary Therapists also provide massage therapy, music therapy, animal-assisted interactions, meditation, and other modalities to provide comfort to patients. Volunteers also provide support to our bereaved family members through one-on-one listening support, co-facilitating a children, teens or adult grief group, or as a volunteer at Camp Erin (an overnight, weekend camp for children and teens who have lost a loved one). In addition, volunteers help support our mission through administrative work in our offices.
