Become a Hospice Volunteer – You Belong Here

If you are searching for a way to make a difference in the lives of others, you belong here. Hospice volunteers are a valuable part of our care team. Based on your interests and preferences, receive specific volunteer training to help improve the quality of life for others.

From providing companionship at a patient’s bedside, to running errands, and from assisting with administrative duties to creating gifts for patients and their families, one of our volunteer coordinators will help you discover the best fit for you.

  • Hold a hand, share a story
  • Send a card
  • Listen, read, or sing
  • Make gifts for patients
  • Run errands or perform light housekeeping
  • Share flowers, bake, or garden
  • Administrative office support
  • Make phone calls
  • Attend community events

Our agencies offer veteran-to-veteran opportunities and participate in the national We Honor Veterans programs. 

Volunteer Training

Volunteering takes no advanced medical training or great commitment. We support our volunteers and appreciate the important role they play in hospice care. We prepare volunteers with specific training including:

  • The hospice care team and the volunteer role
  • The hospice philosophy and end-of-life care 
  • Grief and bereavement education
  • Emotional and spiritual support in hospice care
  • Communication and stress management
  • Patient privacy and other regulations

Medicare requires that a hospice provide at least 5 percent of its services through Volunteers. Our volunteer coordinators will help you discover the best fit for you based on your time, skills, and interests.

If you would like more information on becoming a hospice volunteer, please use our location finder to find our hospice agency near you.

“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
