Why become a volunteer?
Perhaps you know you have a special gift that you can use to bring comfort and peace to patients and families when they need it most. Perhaps you believe dying is not a scary thing, but a beautiful journey. Perhaps you have a compassionate heart and the willingness to listen.
Volunteers are well-prepared as they learn...
Hospice volunteers initial training can be completed as a home study program at your convenience. This training helps you to get a greater understanding of the compassion needed when caring for someone who is dying. Volunteers also attend other training throughout the year to keep them abreast of how to be a hospice volunteer and to provide skills needed to be in a home. This training also provides the opportunity to speak with other volunteers.
