Do you care about people? Do you enjoy spending time with people? If so this is the right position for you. Our patient care volunteers are very special people. They spend time with the patient. They help give the family a break if the patient lives at home with the family. They also spend time with the patient when they are close to the end of life so no patient dies alone. Every act of kindness or service to our patients is equally important and our volunteers are the key in providing good patient care.

Mission Statement

Our Mission...serving people with compassion and dignity. At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually. We believe that in the passing of a person’s life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal. Our Volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease loneliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
