Volunteering

 

 

Every day, hospice volunteers touch the lives of our patients and their families. Whether you are listening to a patient’s stories, reading to them, preparing a meal, holding their hand while listening to soothing music, or running an errand, each kind gesture makes a huge impact on those we serve. Will you spend two or more hours a week making a difference in life of another? For as little as 2-4 hours a week, volunteers can offer companionship, respite care, and their own unique skills to assist patients and their family members in the community.
