As a hospice volunteer you can make an ever lasting impact on our patient's and their families’ lives.

Hospice volunteer visits may include but are not limited to, playing games, painting nails, enjoying a leisurely stroll around the nursing home/assisted-living or engaging in a lively conversations. There are also times when hospice companions may simply sit quietly while holding one's hand, letting the patient know that he or she is not alone. This is a beautiful opportunity to form connections with others while making an ever lasting impact on one’s life.

Hospice volunteer hours are flexible and opportunities are scheduled around volunteer availability, location, and patient needs.
