Are you a caring, compassionate, and reliable individual? Do you aspire to impact someone's life positively, including supporting the incredible staff at our hospice care center?

If you've answered affirmatively, Beacon Hospice Fall River invites you to bestow the gift of your presence!

The requirements are straightforward: companionship, friendship, emotional support, and a listening ear. The seemingly minor things you do can significantly impact a hospice patient's life.

Volunteers may aid patients by:

  • Reading, playing cards, enjoying music, engaging in games, sitting silently while holding their hand, or simply being there.
Telephone Support Calls - these calls are made to support the patient or their families throughout the hospice journey.

Volunteers are also welcome to knit or crochet blankets for our patients, including those who are veterans. Blankets and quilts in red, white, or blue are continually needed to honor our veterans.

Creating Biography posters - designing a Chart A Life poster that encapsulates a patient's life history and their accomplishments.

Our care center caters to numerous communities, spanning from Fall River, New Bedford, to Brockton, East Bridgewater, Wrentham, and Attleboro, MA.

Reach out today to learn how you can part of an exciting hospice team.
