Become a hero on your own terms
On your own time. In your own way. With your personality. Your ability to relate. Your own skills. Your way of solving a problem, sharing a story, helping somebody remember important moments in their lives.
You can be one of our volunteers
When you give us the precious gift of your time and interest, we give you a chance to make a real difference in someone’s life. We train you, find you the right assignment and stand behind you as you grow.
Lighthouse Hospice provides professional care with a personal touch. We accomplish this by focusing on both the patient and their family. We will treat the disease process with medical expertise while emphasizing quality living, not only physically, but also psychosocially, emotionally and spiritually. Comfort, compassion and calming presence are the gifts we bring to this service, and we are honored to walk with the patient and loved ones through this special time.
We are looking for volunteers who are certified in pet therapy! Animals have proven to provide benefits to Hospice patients, including lowering blood pressure, reducing physical pain, and increasing their comfort and quality of life. If you are in the process, or have already completed a pet therapy program, we would love to bring you on as a compassionate, pet therapy volunteer!
To ensure the safety of you, the patients and the family members, we require volunteers to be vaccinated and boosted against covid-19.

About Lighthouse Hospice
200 Lake Drive East, Suite 205, Cherry Hill, NJ 08002, US
Our mission is to provide physical, emotional, social, and spiritual support to the patients we serve as well as their families and loved ones. We are focused on helping patients and families to live with dignity and comfort.
Lighthouse Hospice provides care to all age groups during the final stages of life. Each patient has an experienced team of physicians, registered nurses, home health aides, medical social workers, counselors, and trained volunteers available to help them and their family manage the illness. We provide Hospice Care wherever you call "home". We serve patients in homes, nursing facilities, assisted and independent living facilities, and hospitals across southern New Jersey.
We are looking for caring individuals to volunteer their time with our Hospice patients. Patient volunteers provide comfort to patients and their families through companionship, socialization and support. Providing respite care and support for the patient and family is one of the most personal ways a volunteer can become involved with Lighthouse. The volunteer serves as a friend, visiting the patient where he or she lives. We are also seeking Administrative Volunteers to help in our office with mailings, answering the phone and other administrative duties.
