Volunteers play a vital role in enhancing the quality of care delivered to the patient and family through patient/family care activities or administrative activities that support the hospice agency's goal of quality patient/family care. A few activities our volunteers can do are as follows:

  • Reading to and sitting with patients
  • Providing companionship and emotional support
  • Making phone calls
  • Write a note
  • Running errands
  • Performing light housekeeping
  • Sharing music
  • Assisting with clerical office tasks
  • Visiting patients with your certified therapy animal
* For the safety of our patients, all volunteers are required to complete free drug and TB testing and background checks. Training is provided as part of your volunteer experience.
