About

Volunteer Opportunities: We at VHS Hospice Services of NJ are looking for hospice volunteers to provide vital services such as:

  • Providing companionship and respite by visiting patients and families
  • Office and clerical support
  • Bereavement support
  • Making phone calls
  • Music therapy
  • Pet therapy
  • Art therapy
  • Reiki therapy
*(Volunteers may have other interests or professional skills that can be utilized by patients and families, such as landscaping, barber, art therapy, musical training, or are bi-lingual.)

Training: Volunteers are required to complete a free comprehensive training program designed to prepare the individual for working with families and patients.

Along with the required training for a new volunteer, additional workshop trainings are offered throughout Hackensack Meridian Health, for volunteers to perform complementary therapies. These include 11th Hour, Pet Therapy, and Reiki Therapy.

Great opportunity for students completing Internships, field placements, or volunteer service hours with hospice, can expect to gain experience working with patients in a companionship role as well as the administrative functions of hospice. Training is provided both in the field and in the office with team members. Students may choose the role in which they wish to complete their hours in.
