Kindred Hospice is looking for volunteers! If have an hour a week, you can make a significant difference in someone's life and improve your own as well. We currently have two volunteer opportunities open: Administrative Volunteers and Direct Care Volunteers.
Administrative Volunteers are needed to assist with office-related work: filing, organizational duties, assisting with mailings, and various other simple tasks. Currently our Direct Care Volunteers are limited in what they are allowed to do, specifically surrounding COVID-19 restrictions. But if you would like to interact directly with patients, we have opportunities for letter writing and pen-pals, making phone calls, and occasionally seeing patients in-person to provide support and companionship.
What does it take to be a volunteer? The biggest requirement is a desire to give your time, talents, and heart in support of hospice patients and their families. You will also complete a comprehensive volunteer training, receive TB testing, and undergo a complete a criminal background check.
We would love to find out what your passions and talents are and help you share them with individuals and families to improve their quality of life. We are very flexible and innovative; if you have a gift, we will find a way for you to help!
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.

At the center of hospice is the belief that each of us has the right to die pain free, with dignity, and that our families will receive the necessary support to allow us to do so. Kindred Hospice's mission is to honor life and offer compassion to individuals and their families when facing a life-limiting illness.
Our goals include always treating our families with respect, always honoring our families' care wishes, to provide the very best care, to meet all spiritual, social, and physical needs through our services, and to make the hospice experience honorable and meaningingful for our families. Hospice volunteers are an essential part of providing support, and the process is mutually rewarding and beneficial for both volunteer and recipient. Volunteers are carefully vetted and undergo comprehensive training to learn about the hospice philosophy, relating to families' experiences and how to best contribute to care.
