How to be a Hospice Volunteer

Hospice volunteer opportunities

Volunteers offer the gift of time to patients and family caregivers. Sometimes that gift is the simple act of listening to a patient's life story, reading from a favorite book or running errands for family members.

Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at a local office or one-on-with families, you'll be joining fellow volunteers helping families navigate life's closing chapters.

The first step in volunteering is to find if we have an office within reasonable driving distance. Locate a Compassus office near you and click the volunteer link just under the location name to get started.

How you can help

Hospice volunteer opportunities are endless, ranging from visiting with a patient to clerical work or fundraising support. All hospice volunteers receive free training.

After completing training, volunteers choose how much time they can give. Whether volunteering for as little as a few hours a month or six hours a week, all efforts are appreciated and needed.


Honor a loved one by supporting patients and families.
