Bilingual Patient Care Volunteers

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: The Elizabeth Hospice


Having a volunteer who speaks the patient's native language can make a world of difference. If you speak Spanish, Tagalog, or another language - The Elizabeth Hospice's patients need you!

You can bring your caring, flexible nature, and good listening skills to support patients who are living with terminal illness. Bilingual patient care volunteers provide companionship and emotional support to a hospice family in a variety of ways: caregiver relief, social visits, running errands, light housekeeping, and dog walking.
