Hospice 1:1 or pet visits

As a hospice volunteer, you have the opportunity to fill roles from direct customer contact to clerical duties. Many describe hospice volunteering as gratifying, inspiring, honoring, memorable and emotionally meaningful.

Volunteers consist of retirees, medical students, family members of a loved one who benefited from hospice, stay-at-home parents, employees who get paid time off to volunteer and individuals from other walks of life.
