If you want to serve your community and you have a compassionate heart especially for those experiencing their last days, then CHI Franciscan Hospice and Palliative Care has a meaningful volunteer experience for you.
Our volunteers take time to honor and celebrate people's lives all the way until the end. You can help by listening to a person's life stories or their favorite music. You can sit with them while their family gets a break. You can run errands, make courtesy phone calls, welcome patients and their families at Hospice House, and so much more.
CURRENTLY SEEKING: volunteer to make check in phone calls to patients still waiting to be matched with a volunteer, or volunteers to sit in vigil at bedside near someone dying who cannot interact in conversation. (Phone calls can be made out of the Burien, WA volunteer coordinator's office, any weekday.)
