Volunteers are an essential part of our hospice team. Just an hour or two a week can provide extraordinary compassion and support.

Lending a Caring Hand

Volunteers are an essential part of our team. You will not only be helping patients but their loved ones as well. An hour or two a week can provide extraordinary compassion and support to those in need.

Many volunteer opportunities are available – from working with patients and families to non-patient-related activities for those volunteers who would be more comfortable with such tasks. Some examples of volunteer activities include (but are not limited to) companionship, reading, light housekeeping, meal delivery, alternative therapies, playing cards, office and clerical services, and much more!

Our hospice care team is even stronger with the help of our amazing volunteers. The gift of your time helps improve the quality of life for patients and families during this journey.
