About

If you have a heart for people and would like to make a difference in your community, please consider becoming a patient volunteer for Grace Hospice.

Grace is seeking volunteer to sit with hospice patient on Sundays for a few hours so caregiver can attend church service.

Training is provided and you have the support of staff and medical professionals as well. This is a rewarding opportunity for you as well as the patient and family as you aid in life's final days. Volunteers share conversations, quiet times just "being there", aid in writing, music or pet therapy, however you feel can benefit your time together.

You will feel great knowing you participated in another person's comfort. Our volunteers often express how happy they feel in touching another person's life.

We do ask for a year commitment to the program, and require that once you are seeing a patient, that you see it to the end of their journey.
