Please visit the new page to apply.
The Bereavement Support Volunteer serves as an additional support to our bereavement program,
which provides services to grieving families and caregivers during the 13-month period following the
death of a hospice patient. Support by the volunteer may be provided in a variety of ways, including
assisting with administrative tasks (such as standard mailings) or facilitating/assisting with a
Bereavement Support Group and/or assisting with the Annual Memorial Service. The bereavement volunteer can assist in a"counselor" role, however, the volunteer must have documentation of qualifications/education/experience to
provide bereavement support/counseling (for example, counseling provided to the bereaved during
support groups or memorial services). All support provided by the Bereavement Volunteer is under the
direct supervision of the Bereavement Coordinator (or designee). All assignments provided to the
Bereavement Support Volunteer must be pre-approved and assigned by the Bereavement Coordinator
