Good Shepherd is looking for volunteers to ease boredom, loneliness, and social isolation. To make life just a little bit brighter. There are wonderful people who need your kindness and support. Our volunteers provide companionship to our patients. You can do this by sharing conversations, playing cards, board games, holding a hand, reading to them, or running an errand to name a few. This is done at the patient's place of residence.
Not sure if you can help? Everyone has something to offer, we can help you find that something. We provide training. We also have administrative volunteers who prefer to work in the office making packets, medical records, filing, and answering phones. We appreciate any time that you are available to give.

Mission Statement

Serving People With Dignity and Compassion

Description

COMPASSIONATE ABOUT CARE. passionate about life.

At Good Shepherd Hospice, we believe that health care is more than just a diagnosis and a treatment. It's a daily exercise in making this moment...this today...the very best it can be. We're here to help our patients achieve that goal - physically, mentally, spiritually...and for whatever that means individually.

We believe that in the passing of a person’s life, there are also extraordinary opportunities for compassion, reconciliation, spiritual healing, and renewal.

Our Volunteers play a vital role in our Hospice program. From working in the office, to creating special projects at home, to visiting to provide companionship and ease loneliness, Good Shepherd Hospice Volunteers make special moments happen again and again for the patients and families we serve.
