Do you enjoy reading, watching movies, chatting with a friend, arts and crafts, baking?

Have you ever thought about how you can make difference in our community by serving others? That is the magic of being a volunteer with Amedisys-Clarksville Hospice. You can be doing the very things that you enjoy the most while making an impact in another’s life. We work with you to match your interests, skills, and passions to meet the greatest needs of our patients and their families. You might choose to visit patients and discuss last night’s football game, assist with household chores, gardening, or reading to a patient. Or you can prepare baked goods and/or meals that our staff can deliver to patients, and you can deliver as well.

If you have a passion for caring for others and are looking for a way to make a difference in people’s lives, consider becoming a hospice volunteer. Amedisys Hospice gives patients who are facing a life-limiting illness the freedom to live ALL the days of their lives by offering comfort, dignity, and quality of life. As a hospice volunteer and an important part of our hospice care team, you can help improve the quality of life for our patients, their families, and their caregivers.

"Time is valuable. And at the end of life, every moment matters. Consider giving some of your time to make others’ lives brighter. You may find that your life becomes brighter too."
