Are you a licensed hairdresser or barber looking to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others? Consider becoming a hospice volunteer and using your skills to bring joy to patients and their families.

Help make someone's day, by making them feel beautiful! If your talent is cutting hair and you would like to make a difference in someone's life, please volunteer your time. We’re looking for a hairdresser, retired hairdresser, and/or barber that is willing to give our hospice patients free haircuts. Most of our patients can’t leave their home and could really use a cut or trim.

At Care Partners, we understand that when you look better, you feel better! Help our hospice patients feel better!

As a volunteer, you’d be traveling to patient homes, retirement communities or nursing homes, on an as-needed basis - based on your schedule and availability. Commitment is light and you can accept/decline requests depending on your personal schedule.

Haircuts only. No haircoloring or perms. Must have current license for the state of Oregon.

A background check, Tuberculosis testing (TB), drug screen and training are required for this role.

Why Volunteer for Care Partners

Do you have a heart for people? Do you want to make a big difference in someone’s day? As a volunteer for Care Partners you can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they are going through. Our volunteers share our calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most.

Without the help of people like you we could not provide the level of service families in our community deserve. Our specially trained volunteers are crucial in the daily operation and success of our program both in the office and supporting patients wherever they call home. Volunteers may keep a patient company for an afternoon, take them on an outing, help with projects around the house, give caregivers a break allowing them to run errands or get some rest or provide a specialized skill like giving a haircut or playing music. Whether you elect to visit patients, share a specific talent or assist office staff you will be playing a vital role in our organization.

What families say about Care Partners (formerly Hospice of Washington County): "You dear folks are as close to angels on earth as we will see. Thank you so much for the care, concern and comfort you gave "Mary" and us. I don’t know what we would have done without you." "I believe the people at Hospice improved the quality of my father’s life 10 thousand fold were he or we to have tried to do it on our own. From the Shower Aide to the Volunteers, to the Nurses to the Social Workers every single person made my father feel like a priority, never an inconvenience and put purpose and meaning into every moment he had left." "Most amazing was the process from the point of initializing hospice care to the moment when she passed. Being the primary caretaker, I had all the resources I needed both physically and emotionally." "I just wish we had called hospice sooner." The hospice philosophy of care recognizes that dying is not just a medical event but a personal one as well. Whether you elect to serve on the Board, visit patients, share a specific talent, or assist office staff, we value your gifts of time and talent.

As a Volunteer for Care Partners you can make a profound difference in a family’s life as a compassionate and calm presence who understands what they’re going through. Our volunteers share our calling to bring comfort and help to others when they need it the most.
