Hospice volunteering will give you an opportunity to truly make a difference in another's life. Your smile, your listening, your attention, and your compassionate presence will bring the important gift of connection and affirmation to someone in their last phase of life.

You will receive an orientation to hospice concepts as well as training for your patient visit, and you will be well-supported and greatly appreciated by Patients, their families, and the entire hospice team.

Please contact us for more information. We look forward to talking with you!

Mission Statement

Continuum Care Hospice’s mission is to provide the terminally ill patient and their loved ones with the support and care they require to live their lives comfortably. Our goal is to provide physical, emotional, and spiritual comfort. We believe that Hospice care should be available to any and all persons with an illness for which there is no cure or for persons who elect not to attempt a cure, resulting in a limited life expectancy.
