About

Franciscan Hospice is seeking kind and caring individuals to share their time and talents with our hospice patients and their families.

The comprehensive training you receive will help you to open your heart to understanding the circumstances a hospice patient and their loved ones are facing, and give you the practical and emotional tools to feel confident about offering them the assistance you have been trained to provide.

Our volunteers provide care that can include: compassionate presence, running errands, listening to a person's life story, reading, listening to music, or watching TV with a patient. A volunteer’s presence can help lessen a patient’s loneliness by providing them with companionship but can also offer caregivers a much needed break.

Volunteers work in the throughout King County in many different environments - in patient’s homes, adult family homes, and nursing homes. Franciscan Hospice serves patients in King, Pierce, and Kitsap Counties and you are free to choose where your assignment will be.

If you are interested in this opportunity and would like to join our community of compassionate volunteers, please contact the King County Volunteer Coordinator via email at EmilyMunn@chifranciscan.org or call at 206-965-2907.
