Learn about living while listening to the stories of and companioning those near the end-of-life.
Being a compassionate presence for those isolated near the end is a priviledge and a special calling. Your visits will be a gift for those whose lives and living have become limited. Learn and practice effective communication skills while being a friendly visitor, a helping hand with errands or chores, a grief supporter, a specialized care provider (massage, manicures, art, music or pet therapy, etc.) or an office/clerical volunteer.
Volunteering does not involve any skilled personal care work.
Flexible scheduling around your availability and mobility in the metro area.
Add fullness and meaning to your life while enriching the lives of others.
Be nurtured in your practice of compassionate presence through these unique experiences with our on-going support and learning. Join one of the few local, not-for-profit, faith-based hospices serving those of all faiths and beliefs or none.
