Do you enjoy reading? Watching movies? Chatting with a friend? Arts and Craft? Baking?
And have you ever thought about how you can make a difference in our community by serving others... doing the very things that you enjoy the most?
That's the magic of being a volunteer with AseraCare Hospice. Our volunteers have been called heroes, angels, godsends, and friends. They're the men and women who make a difference each and every day as part of the team of volunteers at AseraCare Hospice. Working together with our staff, these volunteers reach out to patients and families, providing valuable support, companionship, and comfort. We work with you to match your interests, skills, and passions to meet the greatest needs of our patients and their families.
And you can make a difference by volunteering as few as a couple hours a month.
Whatever your interest of availability we can identify a volunteer opportunity that will meet your needs.... and the needs of our patients.
Training is provided. Reach out today!!

Service- Remember why we are here. Passion- Care and serve from the heart. Integrity- Do the right thing, always. Respect- Communicate openly and honestly. Innovation-Influence and embrace change. Talent- Invest in personal and professional growth.
Hospice is about living. Hospice neither hastens nor postpones death, but rather it affirms life, emphasizes dignity, and enhances the quality of the remainder of a person's life. Hospice adds life to days at a time when days can no longer be added to life.
Hospice treats the person, not the disease... focusses on family and friends not just the individual... and emphasizes the quality of life, not the duration.
Hospice is a program of palliative and supportive services that provide physical, psychological, social, and spiritual care for terminally ill persons and their families. It is a comprehensive, medically directed, team-oriented program that accentuates pain control and symptom management for patients who no longer respond to routine aggressive medical care. The focus of hospice care is palliative rather than curative in nature. We need volunteers in ALL areas that we cover in and around the Kearney areas.
