Patient Care Hospice
Be Present!


Work near your home! As a Field Patient Care Volunteer, you will be assigned to support a hospice patient and their family in your community. You provide a listening ear, a hand to hold, and the presence of a caring heart. You help make final wishes come true. You provide respite for the caregiver. You are a reassuring presence for the spouse or other family member that hesitates to leave their loved one, but needs to run some errands or take a short break. The time commitment for this position is 3-4 hours a week. You will arrange a time with the patient’s caregiver that works best for you and the patient.


The time commitment for this position is generally 3-4 hours a week, but does allow flexibility if needed. You will schedule your shifts each month with the volunteer department.

Most patient care volunteers (noted above) also sign up for either daytime or night owl comfort care duty, but it is not required. The time commitment for comfort care is generally 2 or more on-call days (or nights) a month. You select the days (or nights). You are only called if needed.
