How to be a Hospice Volunteer

Hospice volunteer opportunities

Volunteers touch the lives of patients and their families every day. Activities as simple as sitting with a patient or making a trip to the grocery store offer great comfort to those we serve.

Whether you volunteer behind the scenes helping with office work or one-on-one with families, you'll be a valued member of our team. All volunteers receive free training at a local office.

The first step is locating an office within reasonable driving distance. Find 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 the 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.
