Come join the volunteer team with Altruist Hospice!
We care for our patients in the place that they call home. It could be a private residence, a skilled nursing facility, or an assisted living facility. Just a few hours a week can make a lasting impression in the lives of others.
Direct patient care- Sitting with patients, working puzzles, reading, watching a movie or TV, life review, playing games, etc. This could also include caregiver relief if in a private residence, you would stay with patient while caregiver runs errands, takes time for themselves or goes to appointments.
Office- work in our office assisting staff with administrative duties including answering phones, copying, filing, assembling packets, auditing, and data entry.
Bereavement- assisting our Bereavement Coordinator with bereavement mailings and administrative tasks.

Volunteers are an integral part of the hospice team, filling roles that range from direct contact with patients to providing clerical and funding support for the organization. Hospice volunteers describe their work as gratifying, intellectually stimulating, and emotional meaning.
