If you have a passion for caring for others and are looking for a way to make a difference in people’s lives, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. Our volunteers are an important part of our hospice care team, helping improve the quality of life for our patients, their families and their caregivers.

Activities with patients, like reading and writing letters, playing games, participating in pet therapy, scrapbooking or other crafts - and just plain companionship.

Provide emotional support for the patient - and the family - such as providing breaks for family and friend caregivers, making spiritual prayer calls, attending funerals and memorial services and offering companionship to loved ones.
