Hospice volunteers are wonderful people. We have a variety of opportunities, all of which, are critically important for our organization. Here is a snapshot of some of the areas we could use your support and time:
- At the Hospice Boutique – volunteers play a big role in operating our boutique. It is a wonderful and fun environment to spend time each week.
- In our Community Services program – volunteers spend time in the community with those still living at home. Activities and details vary but all are focused around supportive and caring relationships.
- On our palliative care floor in Hospice House – volunteers sit with patients, share musical talents, read, support nursing staff and interact with families.
- In our kitchen – the kitchen is a beehive of activity and our world class cooks can always use some extra support.
Do you have 3-4 hours per week to make a lasting impact in your community?
