Hospice volunteers are needed in Anderson, Oconee, Pickens, and Abbeville counties here in South Carolina. Hospice volunteers are very special individuals who make a huge difference in the lives of others. Hospice volunteers can: provide companionship, provide respite care (sit with a patient, while a family member runs an errand), run an errand on behalf of the family, or work in our office.
Hospice volunteers are required to go through training and and have a background screening. This is conduced through our office in the town of Anderson.
