We are looking for caring, compassionate volunteers willing to spend a few hours a month helping to support patients and their families. As little as a few hours a month can bring so much support to these patients and their families. On average, hospice volunteers give 4-8 hours per month.
New hospice volunteers participate in free training that is available at your convenience.
Direct Care Volunteers- Phone calls, in-home visits, running errands for patients, and activities like reading, praying, playing music, etc.
Bereavement Support Volunteers- There are volunteers, ages 16 and older, who provide emotional support to families who have lost their loved one with hospice through phone calls, mail-outs (cards & letters) and home visits.
Special Projects Volunteers- These are volunteers of any age who are part of a group or work independently to provide support to the office staff or to provide comfort items for patients such as blankets, attending health fairs, and assisting at nursing facilities.
