Did you know?

  • Hospice volunteers help in situations when nurses are not needed. Volunteers can sit and hold a patient’s hand, read to them and have conversations with them. Volunteers try to help with any special requests, including running errands, mowing grass, raking leaves, etc. 
  • There are no scheduling specifications to be a hospice volunteer. If someone works during the day, they can opt to volunteer only during the evenings. Some may prefer just to volunteer at nursing homes, and that is fine too. The schedule is 100%  flexible – it’s up to each volunteer to decide what they do and when they do it.
