Volunteers are vital members of the AccentCare Hospice and Palliative care team. Whether you offer companionship and a listening ear to patients and family members, help with clerical work at our office, or want to support virtually by making care calls, there’s a volunteer opportunity for everyone!

We are currently training for the following direct care positions:

    • Music Companion and Spiritual Companion Volunteers - share your musical talent or spiritual comfort with patients and families to brighten their days.
    • Art Classes/Crafting Volunteers - visit patient homes or facilities and facilitate fun crafting or art classes.
    • Vigil Volunteers - offer your comfort and presence to the patient and family during the last hours of life.
    • Namaste - a specialized program for our dementia patients that uses light touch and sensory stimulation such as: aromatheraphy, applying lotion to hands or face.
    • Veteran Volunteers - provide companionship and support for a fellow veteran. Our site is Level 5 in the We Honor Veterans program.
    • Respite Volunteers - offer a much-needed break to a family caregiver by making one-time, 2-4 hour long visits to patients while the caregiver takes some time for themselves.
    • Legacy Volunteers - visit patients in homes and assisted living facilities all over Pasco County. Put your creative/artistic skills to use in assisting patients with a legacy project, or use your listening skills to offer companionship and support.
    • Pet Therapy Volunteers - visit patients with your furry friend to provide comfort and joy. Your pet must be a certified therapy animal.
    Other (indirect) volunteer opportunities include:
    • Office Volunteers-- join us in our friendly Wesley Chapel office to assist with administrative work, Monday through Friday. Hours are flexible!
    • Circle of Care Volunteers-- volunteer for 2 hours a week, on Thursday mornings, by making phone calls to a group of patients to "tuck them in" for the weekend and ensuring they have the supplies, medications, and support they need. Calls can be made from our office or your own home.
