Hospice volunteers find that assisting those during critical times of their lives can be a very meaningful and personally rewarding experience.

As a hospice volunteer you can make use of skills you already have and also develop new ones. Volunteer opportunities exist in all aspects of hospice, and can be designed to accommodate your schedule.

  • Training: All hospice volunteers must undergo an extensive training program to obtain skills such as: appropriate bedside manner, the history of hospice, sensitivity issues and so on.
