About

Holy Redeemer HomeCare and Hospice is looking for caring individuals to provide the extras that patients, and their families, need to get through their sensitive and difficult time. The main ways that volunteers help are by providing respite support (so family caregivers have an opportunity to take a break), companionship visits (so patients, and family members, have an opportunity to tell their story to someone new) and, sit vigil (so no one dies alone).

We also welcome volunteers who bring with them special skills, like Massage, Healing Touch, Pet Therapy and can speak a 2nd language, especially, Spanish.

Our hospice services all of Mercer County, but we always have a concentration of patients in Ewing, Hamilton, Hamilton Square, Lawrenceville, Pennington, Titusville and Trenton. In fact, we can especially use a few volunteers who are comfortable visiting the heart of Trenton to support our patients there. However, as a volunteer you will tell us where you are comfortable traveling to.

Volunteers do need to complete a training and other on-boarding background checks.

The next training is starting on Saturday, May 12, 2018. For full details request an Introductory Packet. As this Packet is printed, it needs to be mailed, so please provide a mailing address when replying to this post. (Also, please reply prior to May 1st, so you can get the Packet in time to make a decision about starting the training.)
