Welcome to our hospice community, where volunteers play a pivotal role in providing compassionate care. We recognize and appreciate the invaluable contributions of our volunteers, who truly embody the heart of hospice.
Companion Volunteers: support hospice clients wherever they call home through compassionate presence, conversation, and shared activities
Respite Volunteers: support family members and other caregivers through in-home visits, errands, light housework, gardening, snow shoveling, etc.
Vigil Volunteers: offer compassionate presence to hospice clients without family or friends near, in the final hours of their life
Complementary Therapy Volunteers: support hospice clients using touch therapies, aromatherapy, music, and pet therapy
Veteran-to-Veteran Volunteers: provide specialized support to hospice clients who have served our country
Bereavement Volunteers: provide specialized phone support to family members after the death of their loved one
Administrative Volunteers: assist office staff with administrative assignments
Our volunteer training program is designed to equip you with the necessary skills and knowledge, fostering your ability to work seamlessly within our hospice team. The initial in-person training occurs twice a year over two full days, ensuring you are well-prepared to provide comprehensive care.
For those eager to expand their roles, we extend additional training opportunities in bereavement, complementary therapy, veteran-to-veteran, and vigil programs. To learn more about becoming a vital part of our team, please contact our dedicated volunteer coordinator. We look forward to hearing from you and appreciate your interest in contributing to the compassionate care we provide.
