A hospice volunteer is an individual specially trained by Brighton Hospice to provide assistance to patients, their families, and the hospice team. As a volunteer, you help fulfill the promise of hospice in many ways. You are the hand to help and to hold, the friendly face that brings warm conversation and welcome respite. Our trained volunteers provide invaluable services.

Volunteer tasks can be patient related or non-patient related. Some examples are:

  • Visit with the patient wherever they live (e.g., at home, an assisted living or skilled nursing facility, or a group home)
  • Visit with the patient to provide support and a listening ear
  • Assist with letter writing or other projects
  • Help write or record the patient’s life story
  • Stay with the patient so their family can go out
  • Read to the patient or join them in watching a favorite TV program
  • Play games with the patient or family
  • Sing or play music
  • Give a manicure or hand massage
  • Take the patient outside or for a walk
  • Hold vigil for a patient during the dying process (requires additional training provided by Brighton)

About Brighton Hospice

Mission Statement

Our mission at Brighton Hospice is to provide the best physical, emotional, and spiritual care for our patients and their families. We achieve our mission by hiring the most compassionate and skilled people in the industry who deliver clinical expertise and exceed our patients’ expectations. We cultivate an environment where our team members are valued, respected, and provided personal and professional growth opportunities. Our leaders focus on supporting the clinical team so they can concentrate on patient care. We are always guided by our commitment to excellence.


Brighton Hospice was founded in 2011 by Erin Bennett and Thomas Godfrey. When their paths converged In 2008, they had both already acquired vast amounts of healthcare experience working for large and small hospice companies. Both founders had an entrepreneurial spirit, knew they could raise the standard of patient care, and create a rewarding work environment to attract the best caregivers in the industry.

The goal of hospice care is to improve the quality of a patient’s last months by offering comfort, dignity, and care wherever the patient resides.
Brighton Hospice recognizes that the dying process is a part of the normal process of living and focuses on enhancing the quality of remaining life. Our team of physicians, nurse case managers, aides, social workers, chaplains, dietitians, therapists, volunteers, bereavement specialists, and administrative staff will provide you and your family with the quality care you deserve.
