About

Are you interested in "giving back"? Are you at a point in your life where you want to do something meaningful that helps others? We are looking for people just like you! Contact us today to find out more. As a volunteer, your support may include:

  • Companionship for the patient
  • Respite/Relief for primary caregivers
  • Emotional support for families
  • Bereavement support
  • Clerical help for the Hospice office
  • Assistance with errands or "light" household tasks
  • Medication Deliveries
  • Veterans for Vetrans support

    All classes are taught by Hospice personnel and are designed to help volunteers understand the Hospice concept of care, acquaint them with the dynamics that are unique to each family, spiritual dynamics of dying, grief and bereavement issues, sharpen listening and communication skills, and familiarize them with the stages of death.
