  • 3 people are interested

WesleyLife Hospice volunteers are invaluable to our team! Whether you want to work directly with patients and their families or prefer to work behind the scenes we have opportunities for you. Our opportunities do vary depending on the needs of our patients and their families.

All volunteers are required to complete an application and a background check. Training will be provided for your role.

Our top needs right now include but are not limited to:

1 - Companion Volunteers: Spend time one-on-one with a patient. This can be as simple as holding their hand, visiting, playing a game, or being a quiet presence.

2 - Veteran Volunteers: We are seeking retired and active military men and women to provide companionship to our hospice patients who are veterans. We are also seeking these individuals to help with honoring our veteran patients during a veteran pinning ceremony.

If you are interested in volunteering contact Diana Ferriss, Volunteer Coordinator at dferriss@wesleylife.org or 515.229.7366. You can also fill out an application: http://bttr.im/m837f

About WesleyLife Hospice


4328 114th St, Urbandale, IA 50322, US

Mission Statement

Guided by Christian compassion, we support the independence, health and well-being of older adults wherever they call home.


We believe everyone should have the opportunity to live a life of continued growth, experience, engagement, and meaning, regardless of physical, social, or economic circumstances. Aging is an opportunity. The second half of life can be the best half!

Our comprehensive network of services is designed to fulfill the wishes of older adults to remain independent and active wherever they choose to live. Because we have a vision of transforming the aging experience, we focus not on limitations, but on possibilities.

We strive to be the thread that leads families to better solutions and binds them with the strength and support they need to maintain loving and healthy relationships. At WesleyLife, we celebrate a spirit for living!
