Volunteering is truly the gift that rewards the giver as much as the recipient. Our hospice volunteers play an integral role in delivering exceptional care to our community.

Carefully chosen and trained, our volunteers bring an open heart and an extra pair of hands while they donate their time and talents to patients and their loved ones.

Volunteer opportunities are available in the areas of patient care, community service and administration. Volunteers are required to attend 12 hours of training. All volunteers are provided orientation and yearly education.

Become a volunteer

It takes a special person to be a volunteer. Here are some of the qualities that make our volunteers so successful:

  • Flexibility: our volunteers are comfortable with a variety of people and situations.
  • Non-judgmental attitude: our volunteers set aside their own attitudes and beliefs.
  • Warmth and compassion: hospice volunteers are experts at sharing themselves with those in need.
  • A passion to help people: they have energy and optimism.
  • Ability to work with others: each volunteer is a vital part of the team.
