​Be compassionate. Be present. Be a part of the Providence Hospice volunteer community. 

​ 

​Providence Hospice volunteers are valued members of our care teams. The biggest gift one can give is often time and an open heart. You do not need any special skills- only a willingness to bring compassion and comfort to our patients and families. Volunteers work in a nonclinical capacity wherever the patient resides, in their home or facility. 

​ 

​Patient and Family Support volunteering might include activities such as: 

  • ​Be a friendly visitor - Reading, listening to music, sharing stories 
  • ​Meet practical needs - Pickup groceries, light housework or yardwork 
  • ​Provide emotional support - Empathic listening, phone calls, letter writing 
  • ​Give caregiver support- Sitting with patient so caregiver can leave the home for a short break 
  • And many more!

​ 

​Our team will help you discover your strengths and guide you toward your best role. Comprehensive trainings are tailored to each position to ensure volunteers are confident and comfortable in their responsibilities. All volunteer roles support our core values of compassion, justice, dignity, integrity, and excellence.

Mission Statement

As expressions of God’s healing love, witnessed through the ministry of Jesus, we are steadfast in serving all, especially those who are poor and vulnerable.

Description

Volunteers with Providence Hospice and HomeCare of Snohomish County help provide emotional and practical support to those who are facing a terminal illness. We serve patients and families throughout Snohomish county, wherever they may call home (private residence, nursing facility, adult family home, etc.) Volunteers can serve in their own community. Volunteers may help by providing companionship for patients, respite for caregivers, transportation to appointments, assistance with errands such as grocery shopping, and much more. Complementary Therapists also provide massage therapy, music therapy, animal-assisted interactions, meditation, and other modalities to provide comfort to patients. Volunteers also provide support to our bereaved family members through one-on-one listening support, co-facilitating a children, teens or adult grief group, or as a volunteer at Camp Erin (an overnight, weekend camp for children and teens who have lost a loved one). In addition, volunteers help support our mission through administrative work in our offices.
