Open Your Heart and Volunteer with Hospice!


Be the gift of simple compassionate companionship. Spend 2 hours a week visiting a hospice patient in their home in Sandy. Companionship is many things -- listening to stories of a lifetime, sharing in activities of art, music, games, reading favorite books, poetry, or prayer, drinking tea or cocoa by a bright window, holding a hand in sacred silence. The majority of our patients live in a senior community setting -- assisted living, memory care, skilled nursing, adult care home -- so volunteer companionship is even more important for those folks not living at home with their family.

Weekly visits are extremely flexible and we assign you to a patient/family closest to where you live. We serve patients and families living in your community in Sandy, Gresham, Troutdale, Estacada, Oregon City and all Portland metropolitan areas.

The next volunteer training, comprised of 3 sessions, is scheduled for January 27th, 28th, and Feb 3rd 2018.

Volunteer roles include: companion volunteer, vigil volunteer, bereavement volunteer, musician volunteer, pet-assisted volunteer, massage therapy volunteer, aroma therapy volunteer and more.
