Volunteer for Hospice
As Hospice provides holistic care for patients & families, volunteer training classes are offered to help you bring your gifts of compassion, commitment, and companionship to those nearing end of life. The hospice program seeks volunteers aged 18 or older to visit with patients and their families or to assist in office work.
Volunteer Visits – Provide companionship, lend a listening ear, run an errand, read a book, write a letter, treasure a memory or simply be a much needed and appreciated presence for a hospice patient, allowing respite for their loving caregiver.
