You can make a profound difference today in the quality of life for patients in hospice.

If you are compassionate, a great listener & love people, this is the right place for you. No special experience is required. Training and support are provided and necessary for this very special role.

This is a BIG and worthy calling but surprisingly, it will not take too much of your time.
You can set your visit schedule with your volunteer coordinator and the patient care team. You can choose assignments near your home or your work. Hospice volunteer visitors may visit at home patients or in facility patients, depending on the needs of the patients and the comfort level of the volunteer.

If this sounds like something that you could be passionate about, we want to talk to you! Contact us today and we can help determine how best to use your time and your talents.
