If you’ve ever been around when a patient has been diagnosed with a terminal illness you probably noticed that family and friends can’t always visit at times. This is the main reason volunteers are so important and always needed. Patient care volunteers support patients and families in a wide range of opportunities which include but are not limited to:
- Support for patients
- Respite and support for family members
- Childcare and pet assistance
- Bereavement support programs
- Administrative/Special Projects
We always welcome interest from local companies, high school and college groups, and civic organizations. Whatever your interest, we are excited to match you or your group with our ongoing need for volunteers.
Our Hospice Training Program
Upon successful completion of the 20-hour Certified Training Course, you will be prepared to share your special gifts of friendship and caring with hospice patients and families. Classes are free and offered in the Spring and Fall, lasting usually three (3) days with home work and Tb testing (provided free) as required by Medicare.
