Providence Hospice Massage Therapy volunteers provide gentle, supportive massage therapy to terminally ill hospice patients, either in the home setting or in a nursing facility. Massage therapy volunteers provide 2 to 4 hours of service weekly, incorporating gentle and comforting massage techniques and adapting to the needs of patients who may be frail, elderly, or in pain. Massage therapy volunteers may also provide respite services or friendly visiting.
Providence Hospice serves the Portland Metro area including Yamhill and Clackamas counties and we have volunteer opportunities near you and we can work around your schedule.
