Join the Enhabit Hospice family and become a hospice volunteer!

We are searching for volunteers to provide companionship and support to patients during their final months and weeks of life.

As one of the nation’s largest hospice providers, Enhabit is focused on providing dignity and comfort to patients at the end of life. Hospice is more than just symptom and pain management; it is a philosophy of care designed to treat every physical, spiritual and emotional need of a patient and their loved ones.

One of the ways we are able to provide such comprehensive care is through our hospice volunteers. Volunteers are required by Medicare to be part of the hospice care team with the goal of offering specialized skills and support outside of the clinical team. Volunteers ensure that the patient and family’s needs are met through companionship, assisting with everyday tasks and providing respite time to a patient’s caregivers.

If you want to make an impact and feel a calling to connect with others, we encourage you to join our team of compassionate volunteers today.

What do hospice volunteers do?

Here are just a few specific ways hospice volunteers can help:

  • Provide companionship and socialization
  • Provide general office support
  • Run errands for patients and families
  • Write a journal or life story with patients to give to the family
  • Play games, read aloud, and listen to music with patients
  • Walk/care for family pets
  • Assist with light house cleaning
  • Create a photo album of the patient and family
  • Deliver birthday cards and certificates to patients' homes
