About

YOU ARE NEEDED

Have you ever thought, "I would like to do more to make a difference in the world"?

One way you can do just that is to be a hospice volunteer. You have something special to offer hospice patients. Something only you can provide, because you are an individual. Our hospice patients need the gift of your presence and your talents.

What would you do as a hospice volunteer? The typical need begins with offering companionship, friendship, and emotional support to the patient and family. Patients can be supported and assisted in many ways; including, chatting with them, listening to their stories, reading, singing, playing music, or just sitting quietly.

Other opportunities are for Bereavement office support, playing bingo with residents, pet therapy visits with your friendly cat or dog, writing life stories for the patients.

We understand that volunteers are already busy with jobs, families, etc. Training and volunteer activities can easily be planned around your schedule.

Patient visits take place where the patients reside, usually either their home or in a care center. Other activities can take place at the Peoplefirst office located on the west side of Indianapolis or at the volunteer's home.

An excellent orientation and training program prepares a new volunteer for success and enjoyment as a hospice volunteer. It is easy to get started on this new and rewarding journey to make a difference in someone else's life as well as your own.
