Our volunteers are the life of our program, visiting patients, lending a hand to a caregiver or just being there for the family after a loved one passes away.
To prepare them, we offer a free 20-hour training program that strengthens the skills they need for the job. Training sessions are held in March and September.
Volunteer positions include:
- Home Care, in which volunteers visit with patients or stay with them while caregivers run errands
- Bereavement, in which volunteers call, write or visit the family to lend support after a loved one passes away
- Clerical, including filing, envelope-stuffing and similar tasks in the Hospice office
- Fund-Raising, including assistance with Easter and Christmas flower sales, to help pay for Hospice care for patients who are not insured
- Spiritual Care, in which pastors and lay people provide spiritual support when requested and officiate at Memorial Services
Volunteers are also needed to provide meals or help caregivers with errands.
