Volunteers are an important part of our hospice team, filling roles that include direct contact with patients and clerical support. Medicare requires the utilization of volunteers alongside paid clinical and administrative staff. Hospice volunteers describe their work as gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotionally meaningful. We value our volunteers greatly.

Support for patients. This can include visiting, reading, taking walks, writing letters, interpreting for those who do not speak English, bringing in music, and supervising therapeutic visits with pets.

Respite and support for family members . Volunteers can assist with shopping or light household maintenance, or allow family caregivers the opportunity to take care of necessary errands, exercise, or simply have some time alone. Volunteers can also help care for a family pet.

Bereavement support programs. Hospice volunteers can work closely with our bereavement staff. Duties may include assisting a support group facilitator, serving refreshments, or helping with mailings to families.

Special skills and interests. Notaries, barbers and beauticians often volunteer their services to patients.
