How to be a Hospice Volunteer

Hospice volunteer opportunities

Listening to a hospice patient's story or reading a passage of their favorite book can enrich the life of a hospice patient. Whether you volunteer behind the scenes at a local office or one-on-with families, you'll be joining fellow volunteers who are helping others navigate life's closing chapters.

The first step in volunteering is ensuring we have a location near you. Find a location and navigate to the location page. Click on the Volunteer link near the location name to get started.

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.
