Bereavement Volunteer: Stuff and mail bereavement letters, lead a grief support group, perform bereavement tasks that help hospices services. Spend time each week with someone who is having a really hard time with the loss of their loved one.

A few ways you can help as a hospice volunteer is by running errands for patients and families, playing games or reading with patients, walking and caring for family pets, or even creating a photo album of the patient and their family.
