Join our Volunteer Team!

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.

Some examples of volunteer duties are:

  • Providing companionship to a patient and their family
  • Being a comforting and supportive presence
  • Providing respite time for the patient’s caregivers
  • Running errands or doing light housekeeping for the patient and family
  • Community outreach

About Brookhaven Hospice

Location:

2 Bedford Farms Drive, Suite 105, Bedford, NH 03110, US

Mission Statement

Brookhaven Hospice provides patients and families with exceptional hospice care, and facilitates a meaningful end of life experience. With deep compassion and skill, we care for people living with serious illnesses, the dying and those who care for them.

Description

Hospice is a passion - we are driven to provide compassionate, responsible, and timely hospice services, always leading with dignity. Brookhaven Hospice was founded by a group of nursing home owners and operators to provide additional, specialized end-of-life resources to the residents residing in their facilities. Over time Brookhaven expanded to serve other facilities and the community at large.
Our butterfly logo symbolizes the need to accept the dramatic changes that affect our lives - to not only accept but also embrace the natural evolution of our bodies. Their transformation reminds us of the work we do on this earth, the preparation we undergo and the eventual transformation of our own spirit and soul. Brookhaven’s butterfly beckons us to keep our faith through the natural transitions in our lives - the need to recognize life’s patterns and prepare for the stages that affect us all.
