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. Volunteers have flexible time commitment, and no experience or medical background is necessary, as training is provided at no cost.
