About

Our volunteers provide emotional support, empathy, respite and other supportive services to our hospice patients and their families. Other forms of assistance such as comfort measures, including reading to and writing for patients, and sitting at the bedside.

Benefits for volunteering:

  1. Connects the volunteer with other members of the community.
  2. Gives the volunteer a personal sense of self-worth by befriending someone with great wisdom but with a limited opportunity to share it.
  3. Such an association with our patients will allow the volunteer to grow as an individual in both a spiritual and intellectual sense.
  4. Offers the volunteer a chance to try out a new career without making a long-term commitment.
  5. Might expose the volunteer to professional organizations or internships that could be of benefit to his/her career.
  6. Allows the volunteer to build upon the skills he/she already has and use them to benefit the greater community.
  7. Gives volunteers the opportunity to practice important skills used in the workplace, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, project planning, task management, and organization.

We can't wait to meet you!
