How to be a Hospice Volunteer

hospice voluteer

Even the simple act of listening to a story or reading a favorite book brings peace to those near the end of life. Hospice volunteers are a lifeline for families experiencing profound emotions during times of great change.

When you bring a heart to serve, our volunteer team will teach you to overcome challenges and embrace the life-changing rewards of hospice for patients, families and yourself. The first step is discovering if we have a hospice location near you.

How you can help

Hospice volunteer opportunities are endless, ranging from visiting with a patient to clerical work to 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.
