Grace Hospice is seeking volunteers to be a part of our team! Volunteers are an integral and valued part of the complete hospice care package.
Volunteers provide that extra level of care and comfort that only a volunteer can do. This is a relationship building program, where volunteers and patients build a truly unique relationship, demanding nothing of each other except to be there and to be open.
Volunteers also provide an opportunity for caregivers to receive much needed breaks and compassion as they continue to care for their loved one.
Whether you’ve had a family connection to hospice care and want to give back, or are interested in learning more about how to support and comfort those in their final days, I encourage you to explore this truly rewarding volunteer opportunity.
We are seeking volunteers with a variety of backgrounds and skills. Are you a veteran ready to serve other veterans? Are you a massage therapist ready to donate your skills and time? Are you retired and seeking to share your time with others? Are you seeking an opportunity to give back to your community? Are you a college student in need of patient care time? Come and be a part of our team!

For each employee to treat every patient as their own treasured loved one, providing care that affords a quality of life that outweighs quantity of days, and supports caregivers as their hearts find healing.
Hospice is a philosophy of caring for patients whose medical conditions are not responding to treatment or for those patients who choose not to seek aggressive medical care at the end stage of life. It is a program for patients who are considered terminal and are expected to live six months or less if the disease follows its natural course, although many patients outlive this time frame. The hospice philosophy focuses on comfort care not curative care. The goal of hospice care is for the patient to remain as comfortable and pain-free as possible in their own home or the home of a loved one through the end of life. Hospice care can also be provided in a long-term care facility or an assisted living facility
