Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Harbor hospice is committed to providing comprehensive, competent, quality care optimizing comfort and dignity consistent with the patient and family needs and goals. With the patient's needs and goals as priorities, we seek to ensure, without discrimination, the dignity, comfort and choices of the patient/family/caregiver in timely, well-coordinated end-of-life care which includes bereavement and counseling support.
Volunteers are literally, the heart of Harbor Hospice, providing a special kind of caring and compassion for our patients and their families. As a volunteer for Harbor Hospice's patient services, you, "do good" every day. It takes a special, caring person to give of themselves as unselfishly as a patient care volunteer.
