Hospice Volunteers

Volunteers are an essential part of Hospice. Volunteers bring their own unique skills and gifts and can help in a variety of roles such as:

  • Staying with the patient to give the caregiver a break;
  • Providing companionship;
  • Calling or visiting bereaved family members;
  • Assisting with support groups;
  • Office help such as mailing, copying, computer work, filing;
  • Craft projects such as the caregiver baskets, quilts, memorial candles, holiday activities, baking;
  • Assisting with events such as the memorial services, volunteer training, the Community Memory Tree, garage sales, National Hospice month activities, All- American Breakfast.
