Franciscan Hospice Volunteers provide compassionate presence for our patients, all of whom are within 6 months of dying.
Sitting at the bedside, providing respite for caregivers, walking dogs, reading aloud or delivering audio books, singing songs, playing music, and capturing a patient's life story in writing are ways Hospice volunteers enrich the lives of our patients.
If you are interested in bringing joy to others, we would love to hear from you.
We are seeking volunteers throughout Kitsap County.
Personal Protective Equipment (face mask, face shield/goggles, gloves) provided.
