Hospice is a form of compassionate and quality care for people facing a life-threatening illness or injury. Our volunteers make a valuable difference in the quality of our patients and their families’ lives. You can make a positive difference by:

  • Listening to and supporting the entire family
  • Reading to and sitting with patients
  • Providing companionship and emotional support
  • Running errands
  • Performing light housekeeping
  • Sharing music
  • Doing art therapy
  • Assisting with clerical office tasks
  • Visiting patients with your certified therapy animal
  • Supporting community events like educational offerings and grief camp

* For the safety of our patients, all volunteers are required to complete free drug and TB testing and background checks. Training is provided as part of your volunteer experience.
