Bon Secours Hospice has been providing "good care" to the Hampton Roads area for over 20 years. We would not be able to exist if it were not for the help of the Hospice Volunteers. Yes, Hospice is focused on comfort care and family service support when patients have been diagnosed with a terminal illness. However not every person is meant to deal directly with patients. Special Project Volunteers are usually those people who enjoy working out doors, and working up a sweat. The goal is to have a house or yard project every weekend. This time of year is especially busy. Please read through some of the duties you may encounter as a Special Project Volunteer. If you think you might be a match, we'd be glad to have you on the team.
- Complete minor home repairs to include but not limited to: hinge repairs, painting, sanding,
- Participating in Yard work projects to include but not limited: Raking, mowing, weed whacking, shrub trimming, planting, tilling, hoeing, mulching, digging
- Hanging holiday or seasonal decorations on the exterior of patient's homes
- Assisting with cleaning or clearing of rooms for hospital beds
- Maintain confidentiality of patient, family and hospice team and comply with all OSHA/HIPPA regulations

Keep in mind that although the office address is in Portsmouth, we cater to the needs of patients all the way from Virginia Beach to Smithfield. Bon Secours Hospice Volunteers go where they are needed!
