Volunteers are the core of our organization, for they possess the special qualities of a loving heart and a unique call to serve. Some have had personal experience of loss, some bring professional skills or specialized expertise, but most are ordinary people who want to help. Volunteers provide caring compassion for both the person facing the end of life and those who love them.
Orientation and training is provided in English for every volunteer. We want you to feel confident and competent. We believe in a team approach in all that we do, so you never feel alone or unsupported. We serve patients wherever "home" is: skilled nursing facilities, assisted living facilities, retirement communities or their own residences.
Volunteers needed in Hartford, New Haven and Fairfield Counties.

Volunteers will learn the history of hospice, the goals and philosophy of care, and the emotional and spiritual needs of patients at the end of life. They develop the communication skills necessary to comfort and support patients and families because they spend quality time with patients, they often give valuable feedback to the care team.
