Bristol Hospice relies on Volunteers to provide support services to our patients and families including companionship, comfort measures and respite. Specific tasks might include running errands, memory projects, playing music, reading or watching a movie. This is a rewarding opportunity for students (age 18+) interested in a career in medicine, social work or counseling; veterans and anyone else with a big heart. We also need support with administrative tasks in the office and telephone calls that can be made from home.

Bristol Hospice Lancaster promotes quality and comprehensive hospice care for our patients, families, and communities. We are licensed in accordance with state and federal hospice regulations.

Bristol Hospice Lancaster, provides a wide-range of services to meet the physical, psychosocial, and spiritual needs of individuals at the end of life.

Volunteers are an integral part of hospice care. Whether it’s providing companionship to a person in the final months and weeks of life, or offering support to their family members and caregivers, the contributions of volunteers are essential to the hospice team.

Every hospice relies on volunteer support to provide excellent end-of-life care to each patient and family. By being a hospice volunteer, you can gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made a difference in another person’s life.
