Are you caring, compassionate and dependable?
Do you want to make a difference in someone's life including helping our wonderful hospice care center staff?

If you answered yes to these questions, then Beacon Hospice Fall River is the place for you to share the gift of your presence!

The needs are simple-companionship and friendship, emotional support and someone to listen. The small things you can do make an enormous difference in a hospice patients' life.

  • Volunteers can assist patients by reading, playing cards, listening to music, playing games, sitting quietly holding their hand or just being present.
  • Telephone Support Calls - these calls are made to the patient or families of the patient to support them during the hospice journey.
  • Volunteers can also help by knitting or crocheting blankets - for our patients and our Veteran patients. Red, White or Blue blankets and quilts are always needed to celebrate our Veterans.
  • Making posters - creating Chart A Life poster (patient historical background reflecting who they are and what they did in life).
  • Administrative Volunteers - help our hospice office staff with day-to-day activities, scanning, filing, some computer data entry work and so many other ways.
Our care center serves many communities, stretching from Fall River, New Bedford, to Brockton, East Bridgewater, Wrentham and Attleboro, MA.
