Volunteers are a vital part of our team who assist us in serving the needs of our Hospice patients and their families throughout our service area. Hospice volunteers dedicate their time and support by providing comfort, compassion and a caring presence for the terminally ill and their families. Hospice is also in need of complementary care practitioners in the fields of massage therapy, reiki, pet and music therapy, aromatherapy, guided imagery and relaxation techniques and other modalities to work with patients on a volunteer basis.
Volunteers are assigned to perform a variety of important and rewarding duties, such as providing caregivers with respite care, supportive listening and companionship for caregivers, friendly visitation for in home activities like reading, playing cards or games, creative projects, crafts and more! Volunteers sometimes prefer performing clerical work or assisting with special projects in an office environment with our hospice staff.
Comprehensive volunteer training is offered once a year.
