Seeking compassionate volunteer to provide a brief respite to caregivers so they can run errands, go grocery shopping, or take a nap. Hospice caregivers are often times beyond exhaustion, and as a Hospice of Chattanooga volunteer, you would have a tremendous impact in helping families exercise self care during crisis. You can visit with a patient, read to them, hold a hand, or play comforting music. Our Hospice volunteers provide emotional and spiritual support at such a sacred time in a person's life. We also have patients in facilities to visit. We provide enriching volunteer training, and we are flexible with your schedule and what you are able to do.
