What role do Hospice Volunteers play?

Administrative and General Support

  • Provides office support for direct patient care (put together packets of information for patient/caregiver, creating patient/family teaching material, mailings, filing, performing tuck-in phone calls, maintaining tuck-in call binder, etc.).

Patient Care

  • Provides in-person activities and companionship. In person volunteers are needed for patients that are either still in their home and/or with patients that reside in assisted living facilities. The goal of the volunteer is to provide much needed companionship and socialization to patients and often the caregivers as well. A volunteer visit may consist simply of socializing with the patient, the caregiver or both. Often caregivers are in desperate need of a break and would like a volunteer to stay with their loved one while the caregiver runs an errand, goes to an appointment or just takes some time to himself/herself. Activities while in the home or facility may include reading, listening, talking, a life review, watching a patient’s favorite shows, playing board or card games, scrapbooking, looking at books, fidget blankets, coloring, puzzles, respite, singing, playing musical instruments, sitting outside and enjoying the weather...


  • Provides in-person, phone, or office support for the bereavement program and interacts with the family in a caring and compassionate manner. Assists with arrangements after death, agency memorial services or activities (set up and clean up), community education on end-of-life issues, mailing memorial invitations and reminder calls, attending agency bereavement group, composing notes for bereavement cards, calling bereaved to see how their holiday went, etc.


  • This may include hospice interdisciplinary team and complementary alternative integrative health services roles.
