Volunteer Opportunities at Hospice Care

  • Patient/Family Care: Visiting hospice patients provides socialization and emotional support. A volunteer may offer assistance with chores and errands, or make
    respite visits to allow family members a little “time off” from caregiving. 
  • Caring Circle: Helping to facilitate children’s grief, support groups can bring comfort to bereaved children. These ongoing age-specific support groups help children and their families cope with their loss and begin healing. 
  • Bereavement Support: Volunteers help support and educate grieving families by writing notes and sending helpful mailings from Hospice Care and by giving individual and group support. 
  • Office Support: There is always a need for volunteers to assist “behind the scenes” at our not-for-profit agency office with essential record keeping, mailings, and
    other clerical tasks. 
  • Nursing Home Visits: Sometimes a friendly visitor is the best tonic. Visiting hospice patients in nursing homes can bring comfort and connection to a person with an advanced illness. A “sympathetic ear” can also help family members. 
  • Spiritual Care: You can help bring spiritual comfort to patients and families by working alongside our hospice chaplain. 
  • Community Outreach/Fundraising: Help us educate the public about Hospice and our services as a representative of Hospice Care or by assisting with
    fundraising events. 
  • Hospital and Vigil Volunteers: Provide emotional support and companionship at the bedside of our hospitalized patients. Just by being there, you will be offering comfort to the patient and family.
