Seeking Volunteers in Cattaraugus, Allegany, Genesee, & Wyoming Counties of New Your State!

We have different types of Volunteers, that each offer a different type of support to Hospice:

  • Patient Volunteers
  • Bereavement Volunteers
  • Office Volunteers
  • Event Volunteers

A Patient Volunteer is an important asset as a listener, someone to talk and reminisce with, and to provide companionship and support to patients and their families. Patient Volunteers can also provide support to the patient or patient’s caregivers.

  • Some examples of what Patient Volunteers do is having conversation with patient and/or caregiver, review life experiences, reading, puzzles, bedside art or music, performing light chores, sitting with the Patient while Caregiver runs errands or take a break, or running errands for the Patient and/or Caregiver.

A Bereavement Volunteer provides support to grieving families through visits, phone calls, mailings, and special bereavement community events.

An Office Volunteer assists in the Homecare & Hospice office with clerical projects, such as copying, mailings, putting together patient information packets, and phone support.

Event Volunteers help with special events that are throughout the year, such as fundraising events and Hospice awareness campaigns in the community.

Volunteer Training: Patient, Bereavement, and Office Volunteers must go through the same application and training process of that of a paid Hospice employee because they are working directly with patient or patient information. Event Volunteers do not have to go through the application and training process.
