Become A Senior Independence Hospice Volunteer

Hospice is a special kind of caring that is person and family centered and seeks to provide support and comfort to those facing a life limiting illness.Volunteers play a large role in this effort by sharing their skills and interests in a manner that enriches the quality of life for those they serve.

The federal government also recognizes the importance of volunteers in the delivery of hospice services by requiring that Medicare-approved hospices utilize volunteers from their community.Nationally, about 100,000 people serve as hospice volunteers and give millions of hours of their time to serve terminally ill patients and their families.
