About

Volunteers serve as a member of the hospice team by sharing skills and interests in a manner that provides comfort and enriches the quality of life for those served. Volunteers serve on a regularly scheduled basis and provide the following:

  • Support services - companionship, friendly visiting, active listening, bedside sitting, letter writing.

  • Sharing hobbies and special interests -- reading, gardening, listening to music, sports, travel, crafts, etc.

  • Assisting with errands - grocery shopping, picking up prescriptions and supplies, banking.

  • Homemaking tasks - light housekeeping, dishes, laundry, meal preparation.

No task is too big or too small for a hospice volunteer, but often the most important thing you can do is just "be there" for patients to reassure them they are not alone, to hold a hand, to offer a smile, or to just listen.
