Bringing comfort

Hospice of Charleston is the oldest and largest hospice program in Charleston, SC. Volunteers are a vital part of the Hospice of Charleston team! Whether you have limited time to give or you have a more flexible schedule, Hospice of Charleston has many meaningful volunteer opportunities available to serve our patients. You will provide emotional support to patients through companionship, reading aloud, life review and engaging in activities of interest to the patient. You may also provide support to the families through respite care, shopping, cooking and light housekeeping, for example. In the absence or request by family, 11th Hour volunteers may be used to sit with patients who are close to death in their homes or contracted facilities. These volunteers are likely to provide light touch, play soft music, or read aloud while providing a loving presence at the bedside during this sacred time. It is our desire that none of our patients are alone when they complete their journey!
