Hospice is a form of compassionate and quality care for people facing a life-limiting illness or injury. Volunteers make a valuable difference in the quality of a person's life as it nears its end. YOU can make a positive difference by:

  • Listening and supporting the family
  • Read or sit with a patient for short periods of time
  • Prepare meals
  • Run errands
  • Perform light housekeeping
  • Write letters
  • Assist with clerical office tasks
No cost to volunteer for training, drug screen, TB test and background check.
