Hospice Volunteers Needed

Are you looking for a meaningful way to help people in your community? Volunteers are an important part of the hospice team.

Some of the opportunities available for hospice volunteers include:

Support for patients

Including visiting, taking walks, playing games and more.

Respite and support for family members

Volunteers allow caregivers the opportunity to run errands outside the home or simply have some time alone.

Bereavement support programs

Co-facilitate bereavement groups.

Volunteers say that supporting families as they are helping a loved one at the end of their life is very rewarding. Families are so appreciative of some respite. Patients are so welcoming of a new friendly face to visit and share stories with.
