About

Hosparus Health, a leader in compassionate end of life care for nearly 40 years, is extending care to patients and families earlier in the patient's illness. This means more people can benefit from our premier model of care. Volunteers are an essential part of this new program! As a palliative volunteer, you can choose many types of service, such as alleviating loneliness by visiting a patient at their home, or allowing a patient caregiver to take a break by sitting with their loved one. You may enjoy planting a few flowers, helping organize photos, watching a favorite movie or walking a dog. The patient may want to take a short walk or sit outside in the sun.

If you prefer office help, we can use you time and expertise to help us run the office in an efficient way. Community outreach is also needed. Help us reach out to civic groups, churches and educational institutions.

Contact me at kising@hosparus.org and I will get you started!
