Our hospice care is deeply rooted in the generosity and kindness of our committed volunteers. They are individuals who have been moved by the compassionate nature of hospice care and wish to contribute their time and energy. Often, these volunteers are friends or family of those under our care, but they all share a desire to support and comfort patients and families navigating end-of-life transitions.

These special individuals embody empathy, uphold our commitment to exceptional care, and respect the choices and comforts of those dealing with the profound issues and emotions of life’s end-stage. Our volunteers receive extensive training, preparing them to provide much-needed support at crucial times. They become an integral part of our dedicated family, committed to being there when needed most.

Possible contributions from our volunteers can vary widely:

As direct patient volunteers, they may provide companionship to a patient, engaging in activities such as reading, playing games, or listening to music. They could offer respite to a family caregiver, assist with errands, provide transportation, or even serve as an interpreter.

As office volunteers, they may assist with tasks such as data entry, filing, or other administrative duties.

We value volunteers who embody compassion, reliability, dedication, and the ability to respect confidentiality. Specialized training or education is always appreciated, but the above traits are paramount. If you identify with these qualities, we invite you to join our esteemed team of volunteers. Your contribution will enrich the lives of others, and in return, you’ll find the experience deeply rewarding.

Becoming a volunteer involves several steps:

  • Complete a comprehensive volunteer application.
  • Attend an in-person interview with our Director of Volunteer Services.
  • Pass background checks, drug tests, and a TB screening.
  • Complete our extensive hospice volunteer training program.

If you’re interested in volunteering, we encourage you to start the process today. Many of our volunteers find the experience adds purpose and depth to their lives.
