About

AseraCare Hospice of Evansville seeks caring, compassionate individuals willing to provide comforting presence to our hospice patients. Volunteers serve as companions to our patients and their families. Most volunteers visit patients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis for around an hour providing companionship. Volunteers may also choose to become vigil volunteers and sit with the patient and/or family in the last hours of life. We have recently become certified as a "We Honor Veterans" agency and are in need of volunteers to serve our Veteran patients and families. Volunteers are provided free training and can work flexible hours that suit their individual schedules. We are needing volunteers all across SW Indiana. Counties served, Posey, Vanderburdh,Warrick,Spencer, Perry, Gibson, Pike, Knox, Dubois and Daviess.
