Love to make a joyful noise? How about singing old hymns with a hospice patient? Or playing a tune with your musical instrument of choice and blessing patients with your musical talent? Many patients, especially dementia patients, respond well to music that they used to listen to in their early years! A patient who may be mostly nonverbal, might mouth the words or even sing along with you. It's quite a moving experience, and it makes a positive difference in their life--and in yours!

Brookdale Hospice volunteers receive special training to provide support to hospice patients and their families at end of life.

Serious inquiries only: Must be able to pass a drug screen, background check, and two-step TB test. Must possess a current driver's license, proof of insurance, and must be at least 18 years of age.

Mission Statement

It’s not surprising that hospice volunteers consistently describe their experiences as personally rewarding and fulfilling. Helping others as they near the end of their lives is a profoundly moving experience. Spend some time with a hospice patient and create a special space for them-- reading, reviewing life histories, writing a letter to a loved one for them, or just telling stories about the one that got away. As a hospice volunteer you are specially trained to support the patient and family in a variety of ways.
