Why should I consider volunteering?
Our hospice volunteers have many reasons for giving their time. Some are looking for a fulfilling way to develop and grow personally. Others have been helped by hospice in their families and want to give back. Still others simply want to help improve the lives of members of their community.
Whatever the reason, as a hospice volunteer you will gain great personal satisfaction from knowing that you have made a difference in another person’s life.
What do volunteers do?
Hospice gives volunteers the opportunity to use their training and talents to enrich the lives of our patients and their families in many different ways. Typical volunteer roles include:
- Providing companionship for patients, such as reading and helping with hobbies
- Offering expert services, such as pet therapy, accounting, music, etc.
- Attending events to help educate the public about hospice care
- Helping with administrative office duties, such as answering phones and organizing files
As a volunteer, you will have choices about how much and what types of things you want to do, and you will never be asked to do something that you are not comfortable doing.
