This opportunity is open to small groups of 3-5 people and youth volunteers. All volunteers must complete all training and trained parent and/or guardian must accompany youth volunteers.

Our mission is simple: serve patients and their families with excellent care, generous support, and compassionate attention. We help patients live each day to the fullest. We would not be Comfort Care Hospice without our volunteers. Our volunteers bring warmth, joy, and tenderness into the daily practice of caring for patients. If you enjoy helping people in need or find a sense of purpose in walking through trials with others, kindly contact us. We are always in need of compassionate, caring people with a heart to serve.
Patient volunteers interact directly with patients and their families, providing non-medical attention. Their time includes visiting with patients, offering comfort, listening to stories and memories, reading aloud, playing cards and games, helping with chores, or providing bereavement support.
Support volunteers touch patients lives by investing time into Comfort Care. These volunteers make crafts for patients, attend special events, help with projects or administrative needs, answer phones, and recruit other volunteers. Support volunteers are our behind-the-scenes champions.
